Abstract

This article presents a study of an inscription that was discovered near the Eastern door of the Great Umayyad Mosque in Damascus. The inscription mentions the endowment of a house by Saladin to the Alawites ashrafs in the city. The house’s previous owner was identified as one of the Umayyad princes. This house then served as a catalyst to the earliest studies into the history of the Shiites of Damascus in this sector of the city, by way of examining the architecture of the buildings associated with them
