heal.abstractIoannina (Ott. Yanya) was the capital of an Ottoman province (sancak) from the time of the conquest. It developed as a typical Ottoman town in the Balkans. Its history of the late Ottoman period is well known regarding Ioannina either as a center of the so called Modern Greek Enlightenment and of a dynamic Greek merchants’ class, or as the seat of one of the most famous Ottoman provincial officials (ayans) of the 18th and early 19th century, namely of Ali Pasha. However, a lot has to be studied yet for the early Ottoman period. Partly due to a lack of historical sources for the 15th century, the early Ottoman history of Ioannina has been written by now as full of legendary (or semi-legendary) events or, at least, of contradictory information, based exclusively on local historical sources, sometimes of ambivalent value. The present paper uses Ottoman archival material, mainly tax registers, from the 16th and 17th centuries, in order to shed light on that ‘dark’ period of the town’s history. The research question to be elaborated deals with the Ottoman urban policy which was implemented in this town. In the same context, Ioannina is regarded as a type of the towns which the Ottomans founded or transformed in the Balkans. The approach is twofold: on one hand a topographical sketch of the process of transformation of the town from a Byzantine castle-town to an Ottoman provincial town is proposed, focusing on the date of erection of the, extant or not, public buildings (mainly mosques) and their spatial distribution. On the other hand, it is studied the society, which was developed during the first two centuries, with a particular emphasis on the local elites, including the governors of the province. The conclusion resulted from the analysis is that Ioannina was a town where the central power and/or its representatives undertook the project of the Ottomanization of the town. This phenomenon corresponded to the stage in which the Ottoman state formation was at the time of Ioannina’s Ottoman conquest. By 1430 the Ottoman sultan had managed to suppress and control any centrifugal forces and to impose a centralized state system, in which the frontier march lords (uf beyler) had decreasing power. As a result, in Ioannina the role of the central power together with the absence of Turkish colonization determined the profile of the town during the first one hundred and fifty years in terms of demography and urban morphology. Ioannina had few Muslims and a small number of mosques or of other Muslim public buildings. The revolt of Dionysios Skylosophos (in 1611) was the turning point in the Ottomanization process. During the 17th century the Ottomanization process was fully accomplished and local Epirot families undertook the whole project. Ioannina resembled yet more with an Ottoman town, in terms of the number of mosques and of Muslim population.en
