Chapter Summary

If culture is about communication, there was certainly a common culture shared by the political elites of Poland-Lithuania and the Crimean Khanate. Both sides were familiar with the political institutions, existing in their partners country, and with the limitations imposed on the kings and the khans rule by their respective nobilities. Aware of the authority and prestige enjoyed by clergymen in their own societies, both sides did not hesitate to contact religious authorities of the other country: while the khans referred to Orthodox and Catholic bishops in their yarliqs, the kings corresponded with Muslim mullahs and sheikhs.
