Edited by A. C. S. Peacock and Sara Nur Yildiz
Under Seljuk rule (ca. 1081–1308), the formerly Christian Byzantine territories of Anatolia were transformed by the development of Muslim culture, society, and politics, and it was then —well before the arrival of the Ottomans—that a Turkish population became firmly established in these lands. These developments are little understood, and the Seljuk dynasty remains little studied. Yet the Seljuks of Anatolia were one of the most influential dynasties of the thirteenth-century Middle East, controlling some of the major trade routes of the period and playing a crucial role in linking East and West of the medieval world.
This volume examines Seljuk culture and history by looking at developments both at court and in society at large. It sheds new light on Seljuk political culture and dynastic ideology, the engagement of politics with religion, and Christian-Muslim interaction. It will be of great interest to readers interested in Byzantium as well as the material culture and society of the medieval Islamic world.
