As the birthplace of Christianity, Jerusalem and its vicinity possess the most important Christian holy sites, which have become a significant locus of adoration for Christians all over the world. Subsequently, Jerusalem emerged as the third most holy city in Islam. The preservation of this legally sanctioned duality has been a major challenge for whoever ruled Jerusalem in the name of Islam. Drawing on relevant documents culled from the records of the Sharī'a Court in Jerusalem, as well as the Başbakanhk Arşivi in Istanbul, I propose to study the Ottoman response to that challenge at a time when this and similar issues were still decided by the Ottomans themselves and yet untouched by intrusive foreign influence.
