The functioning of a multi-ethnic and multi-religious state: the Ottoman Empire
Majer, Hans Georg
For almost 600 years Muslims, Jews and Christians lived together in the Ottoman Empire. Certainly, even before the region fell victim to nationalism, the Ottoman Empire did not live in an atmosphere of pure and undisturbed harmony. But Muslims, Jews and Christians lived together for centuries without experiencing conflict as the predominant factor of their existence. The status and fate of the individual religious groups living in the Ottoman Empire has been the object of nationalistic interpretation of the past. Much less has been thought and written about the functioning of such a multi-ethnic and multi-religious state. This paper will try to rectify that. 1997 by John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
