Additional information from staff reads, "Under the Ayyubids (1175-1250) and the Mamluks (1279-1516), Baalbek witnessed a revival of its political and economic role. To defend the city from crusader attacks, the Ayyubids built a citadel on the site of the temples of Jupiter and Bacchus, which continued to be used during the Mamluk period. Of this citadel and the town that existed within, the fortification wall, a gate, the towers and a mosque remain. Outside the fortified citadel, the old Shiite Mosque, the great and the small Ras al-Ain Mosques, Qubbat al-Amjad, Qubbat Douris and Qubbat as-Saadin were constructed."

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
As early as 1893, Ernst Herzfeld, Moritz Sobernheim, Max Freiherr von Oppenheim participated in Max Van Berchem's project to create a Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum. During the following 25 years, research materials such as glass negatives, photographic prints, drawings, maps, and notebooks were exchanged between the four archaeologists. In the case of this glass negative, it may have been taken by Moritz Sobernheim on a visit to Baalbeck between 1899 and 1905, as mentioned in his 1922 publication, "Baalbek in Islamischer Zeit, in Voradruck aus dem Werke: Baalbek, Ergebnisse der Aus rabungen und Unterschungen in den Jahren 1898 bis 1905, Vol. 3."

Glass negative related primarly to an expedition to Palmyra (Syria), carried out by Moritz Sobernheim in 1899, when he photographed and made squeezes of some of the inscriptions. A few years later, while in Berlin, Ernst Herzfeld collaborated with M. Sobernheim by drafting architectural plans for the 1905 expedition to Baalbeck. At that time, He might have gained access to the squeezes of the Palmyrene inscriptions that are the subject of this series of glass negatives."
