Offering a penetrating view of Jewish society and culture, the essays in this volume shed light on a little-known chapter of Jewish history.

Its contents include essays on: the foundations of Ottaman-Jewish cooperation; Rabbinic literature in the late Byzantine and early Ottoman periods; Jewish contributions to Ottoman medicine between 1450 and 1800; and Jewish female education in the Ottoman Empire between 1840 and 1914.
