Abstract :
Eleni GARA, In Search of Communities in Seventeenth-Century Ottoman Sources?: The Case of the Kara Ferye District
By the end of the eighteenth century, the corporate community was a wide- spread form of social organization of the Ottoman subjects in both urban and rural areas of the Balkans and Anatolia. Nevertheless, still very little is known about the first stages in the evolvement of Ottoman communities. The present paper tries to shed light on the early history of communal formations in the Southern Balkans with the help of Ottoman archival sources, and uses as a case study the district of Kara Ferye (Veria/Beroia in Northern Greece) in the seventeenth century.




Eleni GARA, À la recherche des communautés dans les sources ottomanes du XVIIe siècle: le cas du district de Kara Ferye
À la fin du XVIIIe siècle, la communauté corporative est devenue une forme d'organisation sociale très répandue entre les sujets ottomans dans les territoires urbains et ruraux des Balkans et de l'Anatolie. Néanmoins on connaît encore peu de choses sur la première phase de l'évolution des communautés ottomanes. L'article essaie d’illustrer l'histoire des formations communales dans les Balkans du Sud grâce aux archives ottomanes à partir de l’exemple du district de Kara Ferye (Veria/Beroia en Grèce du Nord) au XVIIe siècle.
