Abstract:

In this study, the author examines sijills, the official documents of the Ottoman Islamic courts, to understand how sharia law, society, and the early-modern economy of 16th and 17th century Ottoman Cairo related to the practice of custom in determining rulings. In the 16th century, a new legal and culutral orthodoxy fostered the development of an early-modern Islam that broke new ground, giving rise of a new concept of the citizen and his role. Contrary to the prevailing scholarly view, this work adopts the position that local custom began to diminish and decline as a source of authority.
