As you can see below, new Assassin’s Creed Mirage concept arts and detailed information about the city of Baghdad, some of its most important areas, trade, security, Baghdad prison and much more have appeared.
In the golden age of Baghdad (IX in.) there was a police engaged in the identification of offenders and criminals. Prisoners could go to prison for various reasons: mainly for debts, as well as for theft, public drunkenness, etc.D. Men and women were kept separately in the cells, but prisoners of different religions were kept together.
In Baghdad, as in other cities of the empire, city security was provided by Shurt (Police). Armed with heavy sticks and accompanied by a dog, its representatives patrolled the streets, investigated crimes and sometimes arranged raids. Under the Abbasids, Shurt lost its former role as repressants and personal protection of the caliphate. Without the right to pass the verdict, she had to accompany the suspect to Kadi or Mukhtasib (for the court), and then execute his decision.
At that time in Baghdad there were at least seven prisons. Each of them contained from several tens to several hundred prisoners. To get into one of the seven prisons of cities was considered one of the worst types of punishment. Many prisoners would prefer bodily punishment prescribed by the Qur’an or Islamic jurisprudence than to spend another day in prison.
The conditions of the detention were deplorable: crowded prisons, the active use of forced measures – including immobilization, so that the prisoner could not rise for prayer, lack of food and water, violence between prisoners, cruel treatment of prisoners from embittered people, low salary of guards. The most terrible prison was a mutbak: prisoners (usually political) were thrown into the pits, in complete silence and darkness, until they died.
The city of Baghdad, founded in 762. With the end of construction in 766., was built according to strict plan. Baghdad’s planning was based on samples of Sasanid cities. Its founder, Caliph al-Mansur, placed the city in the ring fence, decorated with cylindrical towers and four gates, and in the center placed the imperial palace and a large mosque. In such a pure form, this incredible city, unfortunately, lasted only a few years, but for many centuries it remained the perfect model of the city.
Trading routes through the Indian Ocean allowed Baghdad to connect with East Africa, India, Southeast Asia and China, opening up wide opportunities in front of the city. However, such sea transportation, being faster than land, were not devoid of dangers.
