Abstract

MP3 is an ongoing 'open' relational database that operates as the basic research tool ('laboratory') for those members of the UGent Mamluk team that use prosopographical, sociographical and discourse-oriented methodologies; it is hosted on an external server (Clickworks-server), and can be worked with by any team member from any working station with internet access.

A simplified selection of prosopographical and institutional data for the period 784-872 AH/1382-1468 CE from MP3 is made available in a basic searchable format (names in transcription or in Arabic) on the website.
