    The History of Slavery beginning with the Muslim practice...

    Most US textbooks about slavery, would tend to focus on the Africans being slave traded to other continents. But there's quite a History before that that's not usually delved into scholastically...

    There was a vibrant slave trade in Africa facilitated by Muslims and Africans long before European Christians got involved. The difference is that slavery was not race-based, permanent, or hereditary until European Christians seized control.

    I think the Jews might disagree with you…especially since they were around long before the Muslims.

    Default The Islamic Barbary pirate slave trade (the Ottoman's)

    Yes, while the Muslims came on the scene much much later, they excelled at the trade of white European slaves.

    European slaves were acquired by Barbary pirates in slave raids on ships and by raids on coastal towns from Italy to the Netherlands, Ireland and the southwest of Britain, as far north as Iceland and into the eastern Mediterranean.



    The Ottomans

    In his 2003 book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500–1800, Ohio State University history professor Robert Davis states that most modern historians minimize the white slave trade. Davis estimates that slave traders from Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli alone enslaved 1 million to 1.25 million Europeans in North Africa, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th (these numbers do not include the European people who were enslaved by Morocco and by other raiders and traders of the Mediterranean Sea coast).
    Roughly 700 Americans were held captive in this region as slaves between 1785 and 1815. However, to extrapolate his numbers, Davis assumes the number of European slaves captured by Barbary pirates remained roughly constant for a 250-year period, stating:

    There are no records of how many men, women and children were enslaved, but it is possible to calculate roughly the number of fresh captives that would have been needed to keep populations steady and replace those slaves who died, escaped, were ransomed, or converted to Islam. On this basis it is thought that around 8,500 new slaves were needed annually to replenish numbers - about 850,000 captives over the century from 1580 to 1680. By extension, for the 250 years between 1530 and 1780, the figure could easily have been as high as 1,250,000.


    The redemption (buying back) of Christian captives by Mercedarian friars in the Barbary states.
