Abstract

Drawing on the examples from Seljuk, Mamluk and Ottoman laws and societies, this paper presents some conflicting historiographies and hermeneutics of Islamic law relating to human sexual and gender diversity. It focuses, in particular, on the (social) principle of concealment (star) and the question of private/public distinction in the pre-modern Muslim legal and social ethos.
