In Honored by way of the dignity of Islam Marc David Baer proposes a singular method of the historic checklist of Islamic conversions through the Ottoman age and gathers clean insights in regards to the nature of spiritual conversion itself. instead of explaining Ottoman Islamization when it comes to the converts' causes, Baer in its place concentrates at the proselytizers -- accordingly, none except the sultan himself. Mehmed IV (1648-87) is remembered as an aloof ruler whose ineffectual governing resulted in the disastrous siege of Vienna. via an built-in analyzing of formerly unexamined Ottoman archival and literary texts, Baer reexamines Mehmed IV's failings as a ruler by way of underscoring the sultan's zeal for bringing converts to Islam.

As an expression of his commitment to Islam, Mehmed actively sought to set up his acceptance as a convert-maker, convincing or compelling Christian and Jewish matters to be "honored through the respect of Islam" and Muslims matters to show to Islamic piety. Revising the traditional portrayal of a ruler so distracted by means of his ardour for searching that he missed political opinions, Baer indicates that Mehmed IV observed conversion as imperative to his position as sultan. He strains an ever-widening variety of enforced piety, conversion, and conquest increasing outward from the guts of Mehmed IV's empire.

This account is the 1st to correlate the conversion of individuals and house within the mature Ottoman Empire, to enquire conversion from the viewpoint of adjusting Ottoman ideology, and to depict the sultan as an interventionist convert-maker. The ensuing insights promise to transform our understandings of the reign of a forgotten ruler, a mostly ignored interval in Ottoman historical past, the altering nature of Islam and its heritage in Europe, family members among Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Europe, the perform of jihad, and spiritual structure in city history.
