Abstract

This article investigates the costs of court usage in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Ottoman Anatolia, with the help of the data collected from twenty-five court registers of Çankırı and Kastamonu. It utilizes the information available for the fees charged by the two courts for dividing the estates of deceased among their heirs. The findings of this article indicate not only that the courts charged for specific services substantially more than what was dictated in official price compilations, but also that the amounts that they charged increased significantly during the period of 60 years covered in this essay.
