Abstract :
The following outline highlights certain aspects of Hindiyya's life.2 Hindiyya, whose baptismal name was Hanna, was born in Aleppo, on August 6, 1727, according to the monograph of Munir Wahiba al-Khazin. This ancient city was then a pashalik of the Ottoman Empire, an institution that remained a steady if generally remote background to the events of her life. She belonged to a moderately prosperous Maronite family consisting of her father, Shukhrallah, ‘Ajaimi, her mother, Hilana, a grandmother, four sisters, and at least one brother, Nicola.
