Ottoman Records of Greater Syria: Islamic Court Registers, Advisory Council Records, and Private Family Papers

This collection contains images of archival records from the Islamic Courts (Shari'a) of Nablus and Tripoli, the Advisory Council of Nablus (Majlis al-shura), and private family papers originating from Jabal Nablus and Greater Syria during the Ottoman period. This archive was created by Beshara Doumani, Joukowsky Family Distinguished Professor of Modern Middle Eastern History, Professor of History, and Director of Middle East Studies at Brown University, over several decades while conducting research in archives and private homes in Palestine. The sources in the collection underlie several publications listed in the collection’s bibliography authored by Professor Doumani.
