    In this article I bring into focus some renegade sources that have largely been overlooked, as the renegade has consistently been presented as a figure of the sixteenth and seventeenth, rather than fourteenth and fifteenth, centuries. In my reading, the renegade traces resistance, mimicry, and ambiguity in the interplay between imperial regimes , pointing to occluded histories of sameness and ambivalence of identity . This chimes with recent work by Marcel Elias on pre-modern Orientalism which emphasizes the complications of identity beyond an ‘us/them’ dichotomy. Such thinking embraces moments of assimilation and ambiguity in colonial and proto-colonial encounters, as well as acknowledging points of similarity and sameness between subjects in these encounters.
