Nora Lafi

This book proposes a study of the old regime forms of Ottoman municipal urban governance that were progressively built between the 15th and the 18th c. on the basis of various heritages (Byzantine, Medieval Islamic, Seljukid, Sassanid, medieval Ottoman) as well as an interpretation of the reforms of the Tanzimat era under the light of this re-evaluation of the previous system. This allows the author to propose innovative ideas on the very nature of civic life, social organization and modernity in the Islamic world. The research is based on original archives from Istanbul (BOA) and various cities of the Empire, from Aleppo to Tunis, Thessaloniki to Alexandria or Damascus and Cairo to Tripoli.

Cet ouvrage est consacré à l’étude des racines et des caractéristiques de la gouvernance urbaine dans l’empire ottoman. Il démontre comment s’est développée sur la base de différents héritages (Byzantin, Islamique médiéval, Seljukide, Sassanide et Ottoman médiéval) à partir du XVe siècle une forme municipale d’ancien régime et étudie sa transformation durant les réformes de l’ère des Tanzimat au XIXe siècle. L’auteure propose ainsi des interprétations innovantes quant à la dimension civique de la vie urbaine, l’organisation sociale et l’impact ambigu avec la modernité dans un contexte islamique. L’étude s’appuie sur des archives inédites trouvées à Istanbul (BOA) et dans des villes comme Alep, Tunis, Thessalonique, Alexandrie, Damas, Le Caire et Tripoli

Rendre la justice à Amid

Procédures, acteurs et doctrines dans le contexte ottoman du XVIIIème siècle


Yavuz Aykan

Dans son Rendre la justice à Amid, Yavuz Aykan analyse la vie juridique de la ville d’Amid, capitale de la province ottomane de Diyarbakir, au 18ème siècle. A partir des procès-verbaux des tribunaux des villes d’Amid, Harput et Mardin, il met en lumière la centralité du cadi, du gouverneur provincial (vali) et du mufti dans le champ opératoire de la loi. Retraçant la généalogie des textes utilisés par le mufti provincial, Aykan étudie aussi la circulation de diverses interprétations juridiques de la Grande Syrie à la Transoxiane et la Horde d'Or, et leur intégration dans la pratique juridique ottomane. Ce livre offre ainsi une approche renouvelée et historicisée des acteurs et hiérarchies de systèmes juridiques de ce cadre provincial.

In Rendre la justice à Amid, Yavuz Aykan analyses the legal life of the city of Amid, the capital of Ottoman Diyarbekir province in the 18th century. Making use of court records from the cities of Amid, Harput and Mardin, he explores the centrality of the qadi, the provincial governor, and the provincial mufti to law enforcement. By tracing the genealogies of legal texts used by the mufti for fatwa production, Aykan maps out the broader transformations of various judicial interpretations in their journey from Greater Syria to Transoxiana and the Golden Horde, and finally into Ottoman legal praxis. As such, this book offers a far more historicized approach to the multiple actors and hierarchies of juridical systems operating in this provincial setting.

Les Grecs d'Istanbul au XIXe siècle

Histoire socioculturelle de la communauté de Péra


Méropi Anastassiadou

This book traces the history of the Greek orthodox community of Pera (in Turkish Beyoğlu), a quarter situated at the heart of Istanbul. It is mostly based on parish archives and covers the period from 1804 to 1923. Demographic aspects, administrative organization, the profile of the élite, philanthropic projects and activities (education, charity) constitute the main axes. Through the case of this Christian population, one of the most prosperous in Eastern Mediterranean, the study highlights the functioning and the aspirations of non Muslim communities of the Ottoman Empire at the age of nationalism. Were these conscious of living through the end of an era ? Implicitly, the warning signs of the collapse of the imperial edifice are also sought to be identified.

Ce livre retrace l’histoire de la communauté grecque orthodoxe de Péra (en turc Beyoğlu), quartier situé au cœur d’Istanbul. Il s’appuie pour l’essentiel sur les archives paroissiales. Il couvre la période allant de 1804 à 1923. Les aspects démographiques, l’organisation administrative, le profil des élites, les projets et œuvres philanthropiques (éducation, charité) en constituent les principaux axes. À travers le cas de cette population chrétienne, une des plus prospères de l’Est méditerranéen, il s’agit de cerner le fonctionnement et les aspirations des communautés non musulmanes de l’Empire ottoman à l’âge des nationalismes. Celles-ci avaient-elles conscience de vivre la fin d’une époque ? En filigrane, l’ouvrage cherche à identifier les signes précurseurs de l’effondrement de l’édifice impérial.


Edited by François Georgeon and Frédéric Hitzel

In recent years, there has been an increased interest in the study of the concept of time in the Ottoman Empire. Many existing studies focused on the technical aspects, e.g. the measure of time, and the instruments to do this (like clepsydras, water clocks, hourglasses, and sundials found on the facades of mosques and medreses). Other aspects were neglected, like the various Ottoman experiments with time and the Ottomans' conceptions of time. This collective volume addresses several of these forgotten aspects of the political, social and cultural modalities of time in the Ottoman Empire.
