Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

This article compares the contents of a 17th century futuwwa statute of Bosnian tanners with those of a similar document found in Albania, and assesses what implications these two documents together, and the similarities between them, have on the thesis about the existence of an Aḫī-Qādiriyya Sufi order in the Balkans, and wider in the Ottoman Empire.

Cette note compare le contenu d’un statut futuwwa du XVIIe siècle des tanneurs bosniaques avec celui d’un document similaire trouvé en Albanie et évalue les implications de ces deux documents sur la thèse de la présence d’un ordre soufi Aḫī-Qādirī dans les Balkans et plus généralement dans l’Empire ottoman.
