A Method in the Administration of Non-muslim Groups in the Ottoman Empire: The System of Religious Iltizam
This article inquires into the method (Iltizam System) that had been used by the Ottoman Empire in the administration of its non-muslim groups between 1453-1856. The main argument of the article is that the non-muslim groups in the Ottoman Empire had been administrated according to Iltizam system instead of millet system. Using the documents from the Ottoman Archives various approaches to millet system have been criticized. On the basis of this argument how non-muslims applied their own legal system and how this application had been harmonized with the Ottoman legal structure have been analyzed.
