ABU AL-MUFADDAL IBN AMIN AL-MULK
ِA fourteenth-century priest known from the colophons of three Arabic manuscripts of the prophets transcribed between 1582 and 1586 in the Church of the Virgin at Harit Zuwaylah in Cairo. These manuscripts state that Abu al-Mufaddal Amin al-Mulk ibn Amin al- Mulk Lutfallah was a priest in the Church of the Virgin in Damascus in 1355. He, therefore, came under the jurisdiction of Butrus II, bishop of Jerusalem (1341-1362).
At that time his son Jirjis lived in Cairo transcribing magnificent manuscripts with great care. Abu al-Mufaddal’s father occupied an important place in the Mamluk administration.
