Life Under the Ottomans

Postby DrCyprus » Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:21 pm

The following are excerpts from the book "Teaching Modern Southeast European History" which can be found here: http://cdrsee.org/jhp/pdf/workbook1_eng_ed2.pdf

I will add more to the (in)justice part tomorrow as well as add a part on the blood tax.

First Part
(In)Justice
A Bulgarian Christian man attempts to claim his father's land. A Turk claims it instead by taking "an oath to God" and the Christian is left with nothing.

Second Part
The Dress Code
A Turkish man writes to his local authorities to inform them of the "outrage" he witnesses every day.

A Greek man is beheaded on the spot for wearing nice clothes

Most Ottomans have 3 inch legs, one on each corner.

Lordo and friends
A miniature depicting homosexual sex in Ottoman Empire from a 19th century book known as Sawaqub al-Manaquib, copies of which can be found in the Topkapi Palace, Istanbul and the Morgan Library, NYC.
Homosexuality was decriminalised in 1858 in Ottoman Empire; despite being denied by majority of Turkish historians, stories of rulers having several young male partners inside the palaces are also quite common.

Guess which one of them was the Islamic Caliph and Sultan of the Ottoman Empire at that time.

Old "LikassAkis"......[one of Milti's MANY nicknames] is the one wearing the dark jacket in the forefront [devoid of facial hair, which he despises] and LOOK !, he appears to be wearing his sandals and white socks for this special occasion. :lol: :lol: :lol:
