Chapter Summary

The epic "Osman" reflected the prevailing attitudes towards the Turks among some members of the literary elite in Dubrovnik in the seventeenth century. This chapter examines the impact of Ottoman rule on the tributary city of Dubrovnik and the Morea with a focus on the town of Anavarin. A comparative study of Ottoman and Venetian administrative policies in their respective commercial colonies and tributary states sheds light on the economic and political conditions in regions that laid on the edges of both states. Dubrovnik and the Morea shared a unique past under Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman rules. The Ottoman policy towards Dubrovnik was influenced by commercial interests in the Adriatic, rivalry with Venice, and the control of western Balkans. Greek merchants became active in trade of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, strengthening their ties to Western Europe and Russia and turning their gaze away from Istanbul.
