Abstract

This paper reconsiders the Rebellion of 1416, formerly known as Sheikh Bedreddin’s Rebellion. The rebellion, probably the largest in Ottoman history, began in 1416 and took place on two fronts—the western coast of Anatolia and the Zagora region of Bulgaria. This paper departs from the common approaches to the rebellion, which have focused on the persona of Sheikh Bedreddin and the impact of his heterodox formulation of Islam. It reexamines the rebellion in relation to the material conditions of the period, in the search for a clearer picture, albeit perhaps not a definitive one.

Cet article reconsidère la rébellion de 1416, précédemment connue sous le nom de rébellion du Cheikh Bedreddin. Composé de deux flancs, la rébellion a commencé en 1416, sur la côte ouest de l’Anatolie et dans la région de Zagora de la Bulgarie. Probablement c’était la plus grande rébellion de l’histoire ottomane. Cet article détourne des approches courantes à la rebellion, qui se sont concentrés sur la personne du Cheikh Bedreddin et l’impact de sa formulation hétérodoxe de l’Islam. Il réexamine la rébellion en ce qui concerne les conditions matérielles de la période, à la recherche d’une image plus claire, bien qu’il ne peut jamais être une image définitive.
