Giakoumis K. – Egro D. (2010), ‘Ottoman Pragmatism in Domestic Inter-Religious Affairs: The Legal Framework of Church Construction in the Ottoman Empire and the 1741 Firman of Ardenicë Monastery’, Ηπειρωτικά Χρονικά, v. 44, pp. 73-127.

The Ottoman Empire was an Islamic, but even a highly pragmatic state formation in its inter-religious affairs. It incorporated faiths other than its own and allowed them to live and function legally. In this paper we shall deal with the character of Ottoman pragmatism in domestic inter-religious affairs in general, and focus on the legal framework that regulated the conversion of churches to mosques and Orthodox Christian Church (re)construction. To better illustrate the latter, we have deliberated to delve into the insights of one specific case-study displaying the pragmatic nature of the Ottoman administration within the territories of modern-day Albania: the 1741 firman forbidding interferences of Ottoman authorities at a local level and permitting the repair of the catholicon of Ardenicë Monastery.
