|Title:||Ancora sui Zuhrā zāda/Zuhrāwī di Aleppo: nuovi documenti dai tribunali sciaraitici (1707-1736)|
|Publisher:||Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini|
|Abstract:||The Zuhrawis of Aleppo belong to the circle of notable families in 17th and early 18th-century Ottoman Aleppo. As leaders of the local Ashraf, they were engaged in a number of economic ventures in and outside the city, but in the course of the 18th century they lost power to more aggressive competitors. Their decline was mainly due to the rapid and almost complete extinction of the male line of the family, which left the female members to fend for themselves in the hard, and ultimately fruitless struggle to preserve the family's properties and prestige. The documents published in our paper come from the archives of Ottoman courts and aim to provide further information about the history of the Zuhrawis and Ottoman Aleppo in general|
