Horuz, Semra; Enginsoy Ekinci, Ayşe Sevil; Department of History of Architecture (2010)
This thesis is an attempt to explore the “axis of innumerable relationships” of the book which Jorge Luis Borges touches upon. In doing this, it deals with the questions of “whats”, “whos”, “whens” and “wheres” of the reading activity. While scrutinizing these aspects of reading, the main concern is to reach the “whys” and “hows” of it. Referring to Roger Chartier’s definition of reading, there are three main components of this activity, as the content of the book, the material form of the book and the prac...

The present study not...
The Names of Seljuk's Sons as Evidence for the Pre-Islamic Religion of the Seljuks
Dietrich, Richard (Brill, 2018-01-01)
Although early sources for Seljuk history do not give specific information on the Seljuks' religious beliefs and practices before their conversion to Islam, the names of the sons of the dynasty's namesake - Mikail, Israil, Musa, Yunus, Yusuf - have long been a source of speculation on this subject. By comparing the names of Seljuk's sons with the naming practices of regional Muslim, Jewish and Christian elites in light of the religious context of Transoxiana up to the late tenth century, it is possible to r...
A pan-Islamist in Istanbul: Jamal Ad-Din Afghani and Hamidian Islamism, 1892-1897
Sever, Aytek; Şeker, Nedim; Department of Middle East Studies (2010)
Sayyid Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani was a prominent pan-Islamist of the nineteenth century. His appeal of Muslim unity as a common front against the West and call for a regeneration of Islamic societies opened up the way for a new type of politics in Muslim lands and constituted a model for the Islamist discourse. This study examines his stay in Istanbul as a guest of the Ottoman Sultan, Abdulhamid II, between 1892-1897. The rule of Abdulhamid involved policies centered around the Caliphate. His enthronement coi...
