Şehrengiz is an Ottoman style of poetry written in honor of assorted towns and provincial cities of the Ottoman Empire from the early 16th century to the early eighteenth century. This publication examines the city tradition of Ottoman Istanbul via Şehrengiz, because the Ottoman house tradition and traditions were formed via a relentless fight among conflicting teams training political and non secular attitudes at odds. by way of studying genuine and imaginary gardens, landscapes and concrete areas and linked ritualized traditions, the booklet questions the formation of Ottoman area tradition when it comes to practices of orthodox and heterodox Islamic practices and imperial politics.
The research proposes that Şehrengiz used to be a subtext for mystery rituals, played in urban areas, sporting dissident beliefs of Melâmî mysticism; following after the beliefs of the 13th century Sufi thinker Ibn al-‘Arabî who proposed a thought of 'creative mind's eye' and a three-tiered definition of house, the right, the genuine and the middleman (barzakh). In those rituals, marginal teams of guilds emphasised the autonomy of person self, and steered a singular proposition that the town shall turn into an middleman house for reconciling the orthodox and heterodox worlds.
In the early eighteenth century, liminal expressions of those marginal teams gave upward push to new city rituals, this time followed by means of the Ottoman courtroom society and via prosperous urban dwellers and expressed within the poetry of Nedîm. the writer strains how a practice that had its roots within the early 16th century as a marginal protest circulation developed until eventually the early eighteenth century as a stream of city area reform.
