About this book


In the 17th century, the elite household (kap?) became the focal point of Ottoman elite politics and socialization. It was a cultural melting pot, bringing together individuals of varied backgrounds through empire-wide patronage networks. This book investigates the layers of kap? power, through the example of ?eyhülislam Feyzullah Efendielite.
