Der nahezu unbekannte Trinitarierorden spielte seit dem 13. Jahrhundert eine zentrale Rolle bei der Befreiung christlicher Gefangener aus muslimischen Ländern. Er wurde 1688 auch in der Habsburgermonarchie installiert. Von hier aus war er sehr erfolgreich im Osmanischen Reich, der Scharzmeerregion und Nordafrika tätig. Die Autorin erörtert diese humanitäre Tätigkeit in ihren religiösen, politischen, kulturellen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexten. Die österreichischen Trinitarier ermöglichten von 1690 bis 1783 nahezu 4000 Kriegsgefangenen und Verschleppten eine Rückkehr in ihre Heimat. Dem Orden selbst ging es dabei vorrangig um die »Rettung der Seelen«. Die erhaltenen Dokumente geben auch Auskunft über die befreiten Personen sowie das Gesamtphänomen der Sklaverei im Mittelmeerraum.

Recent research has demonstrated that early modern slavery was much more widespread than the traditional concentration on colonial plantation slavery might suggest. This volume provides both an overview and snapshot of current research on the history of captivity, slavery, ransom and abolition in the vicinity of the Eurasian steppe from the early modern period to modern times. The contributions centre on the Russian Empire, while bringing together scholars from various historical traditions of the leading states in this region, including Poland–Lithuania and the Ottoman Empire, and their various successor states.

An engrossing and revolutionary biography of Isabella of Castile, the controversial Queen of Spain who sponsored Christopher Columbus's journey to the New World, established the Spanish Inquisition, and became one of the most influential female rulers in history Born at a time when Christianity was dying out and the Ottoman Empire was aggressively expanding, Isabella was inspired in her youth by tales of Joan of Arc, a devout young woman who unified her people and led them to victory against foreign invaders. In 1474, when most women were almost powerless, twenty-three-year-old Isabella defied a hostile brother and a mercurial husband to seize control of Castile and León. Her subsequent feats were legendary. She ended a twenty-four-generation struggle between Muslims and Christians, forcing North African invaders back over the Mediterranean Sea. She laid the foundation for a unified Spain. She sponsored Columbus's trip to the Indies and negotiated Spanish control over much of the New World with the help of Rodrigo Borgia, the infamous Pope Alexander VI. She also annihilated all who stood against her by establishing a bloody religious Inquisition that would darken Spain's reputation for centuries. Whether saintly or satanic, no female leader has done more to shape our modern world, in which millions of people in two hemispheres speak Spanish and practice Catholicism. Yet history has all but forgotten Isabella's influence, due to hundreds of years of misreporting that often attributed her accomplishments to Ferdinand, the bold and philandering husband she adored. Using new scholarship, Downey's luminous biography tells the story of this brilliant, fervent, forgotten woman, the faith that propelled her through life, and the land of ancient conflicts and intrigue she brought under her command. From the Hardcover edition.

In terms of resource mobilization and devastation the wars between Russia, the Crimean Khanate and the Ottoman Empire were some of the largest of the 18th century, and had enormous consequences for the balance of power in Eastern Europe. Brian Davies examines how these conflicts characterized the course of Russian military development in response to Ottoman and Crimean Tatar threats and to determine under what circumstances and in what ways Russian military power experienced a "revolution" awarding it clear preponderance over the Ottoman-Crimean system. A central part of Davies' argument is that identifying and explaining a Military Revolution must involve examining the role of factors not purely military. One must look not only at new military technology, new force and command structure, new tactical thinking, and new recruitment and military finance practices but also consider the impact of larger demographic, economic, and sociopolitical changes.

Although trade connects distant people and regions, bringing cultures closer together through the exchange of material goods and ideas, it has not always led to unity and harmony. From the era of the Crusades to the dawn of colonialism, exploitation and violence characterized many trading ventures, which required vessels and convoys to overcome tremendous technological obstacles and merchants to grapple with strange customs and manners in a foreign environment. Yet despite all odds, experienced traders and licensed brokers, as well as ordinary people, travelers, pilgrims, missionaries, and interlopers across the globe, concocted ways of bartering, securing credit, and establishing relationships with people who did not speak their language, wore different garb, and worshipped other gods. Religion and Trade: Cross-Cultural Exchanges in World History, 1000-1900 focuses on trade across religious boundaries around the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic and Indian Oceans during the second millennium. Written by an international team of scholars, the essays in this volume examine a wide range of commercial exchanges, from first encounters between strangers from different continents to everyday transactions between merchants who lived in the same city yet belonged to diverse groups. In order to broach the intriguing yet surprisingly neglected subject of how the relationship between trade and religion developed historically, the authors consider a number of interrelated questions: When and where was religion invoked explicitly as part of commercial policies? How did religious norms affect the everyday conduct of trade? Why did economic imperatives, political goals, and legal institutions help sustain commercial exchanges across religious barriers in different times and places? When did trade between religious groups give way to more tolerant views of "the other" and when, by contrast, did it coexist with hostile images of those decried as "infidels"? Exploring captivating examples from across the world and spanning the course of the second millennium, this groundbreaking volume sheds light on the political, economic, and juridical underpinnings of cross-cultural trade as it emerged or developed at various times and places, and reflects on the cultural and religious significance of the passage of strange persons and exotic objects across the many frontiers that separated humankind in medieval and early modern times.

Suraiya Faroqhi schildert knapp, kenntnisreich und lebendig die Geschichte eines der mächtigsten Reiche des späten Mittelalters und der Neuzeit, das noch zu Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts das gesamte Gebiet der heutigen Staaten Türkei, Irak, Syrien, Libanon, Israel sowie Teile Griechenlands umfaßte. Die Darstellung folgt der Chronologie der politischen Geschichte vom 14. Jahrhundert bis zur Auflösung des Reiches nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg und bezieht dabei die Geschichte von Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Kultur überall gleichwertig ein. Hieraus ergibt sich ein ungewöhnlich farbiges Bild vom Osmanischen Reich: Die bisherige Vorstellung von einer erstarrten osmanischen Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft, die kaum mit der abendländischen, europäischen verflochten war, muß revidiert werden. Einzelne gesellschaftliche Gruppen und Provinzen suchten im eigenen Interesse mit Nachdruck den Anschluß an Europa. Warum der Vielvölkerstaat trotz dieser Bemühungen und trotz seiner – angesichts der heutigen Konflikte ganz erstaunlichen – religiösen Toleranz zerbrach, macht die Autorin eindringlich deutlich.

.De Grote Turk werd hij genoemd. In Turkije ging hij de geschiedenis in als Kanuni sultan Süleyman, dat wil zeggen, de Wetgever. Wij kennen hem als de Prachtlievende. Tijdens zijn sultanaat (1520-1566) strekte het Osmaanse Rijk zich uit van de Donau tot aan de Eufraat, Tigris en Nijl. Het was bovendien de Gouden Eeuw van de Turkse geschiedenis. `Een barbaar van duistere afkomst was het striemende oordeel van Erasmus over `Solymanno. Buitenlandcorrespondent Henk Boom volgde het spoor van de sultan en kwam tot andere conclusies. De kennis van de Osmaanse beschaving was minimaal in Erasmus tijd. Haar cultuur werd genegeerd en haar slechte imago was het resultaat van christelijke propaganda. In Rhodos, Boedapest, Wenen, Sarajevo, Istanbul en Amasya sprak Boom met historici. Hij bezocht plaatsen waar de Grote Turk een rijke erfenis naliet. En hij stelde vragen. Wat was de rol van zijn echtgenote Roxelana? Waarom werden twee van zijn zonen geëxecuteerd? Had Wenen in 1529 veroverd moeten worden? Moest Hongarije een bufferstaat zijn tussen Osmanen en Habsburgers? Het resultaat van deze aanpak levert een fascinerend tijdsbeeld op van een heerser die meer invloed op de toekomst van Europa heeft gehad dan meestal wordt aangenomen.
