Zoom Lecture by Marinos Sariyannis with the topic "Geographies and Histories of the Ottoman Supernatural Tradition: Exploring Magic, the Marvelous, and the Strange in Ottoman Mentalities"
The lecture is part of a series launched in collaboration with the Deptartment of History and the Institute of European Studies of the University of Berkeley for the research in history undertaken in both establishments to enhance communication, knowledge and exchange of ideas. This is one of four ERC projects carried out by the research groups of IMS-FORTH.
The GHOST project aims to explore Ottoman notions and belief systems concerning the supernatural. Its major objectives will be to explore the meaning and content of the perceptions of the “supernatural”, to localize such beliefs in the various Ottoman systems of thought, to analyze the changes that took place and to associate them with emerging or declining layers of culture and specific social groups. The project also addresses larger debates in recent historiography about the relevance of the “disenchantment” and “enlightenment” paradigms, integrating Ottoman intellectual history into the broader early modern cultural history.
