Description

One of the most astonishing phenomena of Jewish life in the Ottoman state is the widespread appeal to the kadi's court - a muslim court. I intend to describe the frequency of this norm, against explicit regulations, and explain the motivation to use the kadi's services, as well as the reasons for the ban against it. I shall conclude with the social and cultural significance of this practice.

This presentation is for the following text(s):

  • Mordechai Halevi, Darkei Noam (Pleasant Ways) (Venice, 1697)
  • The court records of istanbul/ Istanbul sher'iyye sijilleri (1662)
