This book explores the legal structure of the Ottoman Empire between the sixteenth and early nineteenth centuries and examines its association with the Empire's sociopolitical structure. The author's main focus is on the relationship between formal Islamic law and the law as it was actually administered in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Istanbul and its environs. Using court records, other primary archival documents, and little-used Islamic literature, Gerber establishes for the first time that large bodies of the law were indeed practiced and enforced as law. This refutes the ethnocentric Western view, propagated by Max Weber, that Islamic law was dispensed arbitrarily because of a widening gap between ossified Muslim law and a changing Muslim society. Gerber furthermore integrates his empirical research into a wider theoretical framework adapted from legal and historical-legal anthropology and uses this material as the basis for comparisons between the Ottoman Empire's legal system and other legal systems, most notably that of Morocco. This book shows that although Islamic law as practiced did have to contend with an inviolable sacred core, historical development nevertheless took place that can shed new light on the civilization of Islam.

Throughout history, Islamic law--through its jurists, judges, and scholars--has addressed various social, economic, and cultural issues, and has often drawn upon custom and local practice in doing so. This book examines the dynamism of Islamic law, or sharia, across time and place, particularly in mediating relations between state and society. It also considers the ways in which Muslim intellectuals and scholars have debated the place of Islamic law in society, and illustrates the rich and diverse heritage of the Islamic legal tradition in the Muslim world and beyond. The authors bring together interdisciplinary research on Islamic law in the context of the United States, Europe, Southeast and Central Asia, and the Arab world from as early as the twelfth century up to the twenty-first century, exploring how it has molded and, in certain cases, continues to mold, social, economic, and cultural aspects of daily life.

This volume presents part of the Proceedings of the 18th Congress of the Union Europeenne des Arabisants et Islamisants, in particular those papers dealing with the three main themes of the congress: continuity and development in Islamic Law, Christianity and Modernism in 18th and 19th Century Islam. It ranges from studies about sari'a in the Koran, in early shi'ite Islam, to its applications in modern countries like Kuwait. The Christian element in the Islamic world is not only analysed from a theological viewpoint; much attention is also given to Arab translations of the Bible and to the juridical, social and political status of the Christians, as reflected in their contacts with the West and in Christian Arab literature. Finally, a series of studies focuses on modernism, taking newspaper articles, cartoons and political satire as their main sources, as well as theatre and schoolbooks.

Emphasising an empirical research to contemporary legal pluralist settings in Muslim contexts, the present collected volume contributes to a deepened understanding of legal pluralist issues and realities through comparative examination. This approach reveals some common features, such as the relevance of Islamic law in power struggles and in the construction of (state or national) identities, strategies of coping with coexisting sets of legal norms by the respective agents, or public debates about the risks induced by the recognition of religious institutions in migrant societies. At the same time, the studies contained in this volume reveal that legal pluralist settings often reflect very specific historical and social constellations, which demands caution towards any generalisation.
