In the 17th century, the elite household (kapı) became the focal point of Ottoman elite politics and socialization. It was a cultural melting pot, bringing together individuals of varied backgrounds through empire-wide patronage networks. This book investigates the layers of kapı power, through the example of Şeyhülislam Feyzullah Efendielite.
