Attend: Building Confessional Identities in the Ottoman Empire (16th-18th centuries) (6 February: Rome)

The École française de Rome/EHESS, CéSor/Université de Reims - CerHic/École française d'Athènes present “Rome: Building Confessional Identities in the Ottoman Empire (16th-18th centuries)” to be held at the École française de Rome - Piazza Navona, 62 - 00186 Roma on 6 February 2017

La collaborazione in età moderna tra autorità politiche e gerarchie ecclesiastiche nell’imposizione di un’uniformità religiosa e nella creazione di marcatori identitari esclusivi è stata tradizionalmente studiata all’interno del quadro interpretativo della “confessionalizzazione” – un concetto nato per il caso tedesco e finora applicato solamente ai territori europei. Recentemente, però, alcuni studiosi hanno cominciato ad esaminare il processo di costruzione di un’ortodossia islamica sunnita tra la fine del Medioevo e la prima età moderna, nel tentativo di applicare il paradigma storiografico della confessionalizzazione anche all’Impero ottomano.

Inserendosi in tale dibattito ma ampliando il campo d’indagine, questa giornata di studi si propone di riflettere in maniera comparativa sulla progressiva costruzione delle identità confessionali tra le comunità dell’Impero ottomano: si tratta di un processo quasi sempre determinato dal confronto con un gruppo religioso rivale (islam sunnita e sciita, cristianesimo ortodosso e cattolico, ebraismo rabbinico e movimenti mistici o carismatici) o con i membri di un’altra comunità. Un’attenzione speciale sarà rivolta alla duplice natura di tale processo (dall’alto e dal basso) così come alle possibili somiglianze, differenze e intrecci tra la “confessionalizzazione” europea e ottomana.
