Madrasa has a central place in the history of Islamic education. The madrasa had first been founded in the early years of Islamic history but the most advanced models were developed under the Nizāmiya Madrasas, founded in several citites by Nizāmu'l-mulk, Seljuk statesman. This model was later adopted by the Zangids and Ayyubids during their reign from the middle of the 12th to middle of the 13th centuries. They built many madrasas in Bilād al-Sham and Egypt. This increase in the number of madrasas had a deep influence in Damascus in scientific and political respects. The Zangid and Ayyubid dynasties attributed great importance to host ulamā of the time in Damascus and built a lot of mansıb in madrasas. During this era Damascus became a centre of science and knowledge, hosted various prominent ulamā of the time. This thesis analyses the relationship between politicians and ulemā in Damascus madrasas during the Zangids Ayyubids. It demonstrates the change in this relationship in scientific and political context.
