This volume complements the selection of Wilferd Madelung's articles previously published by Variorum (Religious Schools and Sects in Medieval Islam), the earlier volume dealing principally with dogmatic issues, the present one concentrating on the political and social aspects. The first articles here examine the origins of the belief in the coming of the Mahdi and apocalyptic prophecies connected with this, such as arose among the Yemenite emigrants in Syria and Egypt. The following studies relate to Shi'ite and Alid movements under the Umayyad and Abbasid caliphates and to the political ideology of the Buyids. The final group focuses on the Yemen, its social structures and its historiography, in particular Zaydi sources. A section of additional notes and a detailed index complete the volume. Ce volume vient s'ajouter en complement de la collection d'articles de Wilferd Madelung prealablement publiee par Variorum (Religious Schools and Sects in Medieval Islam); le volume precedent traitant de questions de dogme et celui-ci se concentrant sur les aspects sociaux et politiques. Les premiers articles font l'examen des origines de la croyance en l'avenement du Mahdi et des prophecies apocalyptiques lui etant rattachees - telles celles qui ont vu le jour parmi les emigres yemenites en Syrie et en Egypte. Les etudes suivantes se rapportent aux mouvements chi'ite et alide sous les caliphats umayyade et abbaside, ainsi qu'A l'ideologie politique des Buyides. Un dernier groupe s'attache au Yemen, A ses structures sociales et son historiographie, en particulier aux sources Zaydi. Une section de notes supplementaires et index detaille viennent s'ajouter au recueil.
