Slave Artisans of Istanbul in the 18th Century: An Evaluation through the Surety System

Esen Salarcı Baydar

The literature provides a limited amount of information, however fragmented, about the slave artisans who played an important role among Ottoman artisan groups. This information, however, does not provide adequate knowledge about them. These artisans commonly appear as defendants in the Ottoman Shari’a Registers, but rarely as claimants. The relevance of the suretyship system for the slave artisans, the causes that made suretyship necessary, the officials in their guild, as well as the social rank and class of the members of this organization, are all addressed in this paper. Furthermore, the issues and objections raised by this group of artisans are examined in the light of archival documents and shari'a registers. In addition, the problems created by this group of artisans, as well as the complaints filed at the court involving these artisans, are also analyzed in the light of archival documents and shari'a registers.

XVIII. Yüzyılda İstanbul Esirci Esnafı: Kefalet Sistemi Üzerinden Bir Değerlendirme

Esen Salarcı Baydar

Osmanlı esnaf teşekkülü içinde önemli yere haiz olan esirci esnafına dair bilgiler bulunmakla beraber konunun mahiyetinin anlaşılmasında yetersizdir. Literatürde dağınık ve az olan bilgiler esirci esnafına dair doyurucu bilgiler sunmaz. Esirci esnafı sıklıkla Osmanlı Şeriyye Sicilleri’nde davalı ve nadiren davacı olarak karşımıza çıkmaktadır. Bu çalışmada bu zümrenin kefalet sistemleri için tutulmuş 1640, 1710 ve 1749 tarihli üç arşiv kaydı ışığında esirci esnafının kefalet sistemi, esnaf teşkilatındaki görevliler, esnaf teşekkülünü oluşturanların sosyal statüleri ve kefaleti gerekli kılan sebeplere dair bilgiler ele alınarak değerlendirmeler yapılmıştır. Ayrıca, bu esnaf grubunun sebep olduğu problemler ve mahkemeye yansıyan şikâyetler de arşiv belgeleri ve şeriye sicilleri ışığında incelenmiştir.
