Abstract

Register 3643 of the Ottoman treasury records is a unique source for the study of the demography and the basic social and economic traits of the Christian population of Jerusalem in the latter part of the seventeenth century. It is a poll-tax collection report which differs from its seventeenth-century antecedents in that it was actually based on an updated census of the assessed population. As such, this census was probably the first taken in Jerusalem since the end of the sixteenth century. This probability as well as the rich statistical data recorded in the poll-tax register studied provide a peerless opportunity to reconstruct and sketch in real quantitative terms a demographic, social and economic profile of the Christian population of Jerusalem and its vicinity, as it may have existed in the late seventeenth century.
