Chapter Summary

The material used for the survey of a group of female slaves emancipated after the Peace of Karlowitz contains data on men as well. This chapter considers this information, and establishes the possible differences regarding the two sexes as far as price, owners and other characteristics are concerned. The analysis of the material follows the same pattern as that used in the analysis on the women. In contrast to the women, most of whom lived in Galata and its vicinity, the highest number of male slaves could be collected in Istanbul itself. The chapter presents four tables which describe: (i) place of abode of freed male slaves, (ii) the origins of freed male slaves, (iii) former masters of the freed male slaves, and (iv) sums paid for the manumission of the male slaves.

Keywords: female slaves; Galata; Istanbul; Karlowitz; male slaves; manumitted slaves
