The Siege of Jerusalem was part of a military conflict which took place in the year 637 between the Byzantine Empire and the Rashidun Caliphate. It began when the Rashidun army, under the command of... More > Abu Ubaidah, besieged Jerusalem in November 636. After six months, the Patriarch Sophronius agreed to surrender, on condition that he submit only to the Rashidun caliph. In April 637, Caliph Umar traveled to Jerusalem in person to receive the submission of the city. The Patriarch thus surrendered to him. The Muslim conquest of the city solidified the Arab control over Palestine, control which would not again be threatened until the First Crusade in the late 11th century. Thus, it came to be regarded as a holy site by Islam, as well as by Christianity and Judaism. This stabilized control of Palestina Prima.

Partant d’une démarche ethnobotanique originale, cet ouvrage décline le végétal sous les différentes catégories d’usages (aliments,... More > remèdes, poisons, plantes techniques, etc.) que les populations maghrébines ont inventées pour assurer leur existence et l'ancrer dans la durée. Sont aussi abordées la question des vernaculaires et les droits intellectuels des communautés traditionnelles. Produits féconds du mariage des sciences naturelles et humaines, l’ethnobotanique et l’ethnopharmacologie renouent, d’une certaine façon, avec l’ancienne tradition encyclopédiste et réintroduisent les civilisations du monde au coeur de la connaissance scientifique, contribuant ainsi à la réhabilitation de pans essentiels des cultures traditionnelles, trop longtemps assimilés à des folklores. Elles prennent, de plus, en raison de leur dimension sociétale, une part sans cesse plus grande dans les programmes de développement durable, à la faveur du renouveau de l’écologie politique.< Less
