The Ottoman Empire arose in Western Anatolia and the Balkans, the place charismatic Sufi leaders have been seemed to be God’s deputies on the earth. Yilmaz lines how Ottoman rulers, in alliance with an more and more strong Sufi institution, continually refashioned and legitimated their rule via mystical imageries of authority, and the way the caliphate itself reemerged as an ethical paradigm that formed early sleek Muslim empires.

A masterful paintings of scholarship, Caliphate Redefined is the 1st finished research of premodern Ottoman political concept to supply an in depth research of a wealth of formerly unstudied texts in Arabic, Persian, and Ottoman Turkish.
