IRCICA has long been aware of the importance of selecting, analyzing and publishing historical documents on Al Quds in order to overcome the major language barrier for Muslim and international researchers and facilitate efforts concerning the history and civilizational heritage of Al Quds. Therefore, IRCICA has started a long term project for the publication of documents in the Prime Ministry Ottoman Archives of the Turkish Republic concerning the history of Al Quds, and this book is the first outcome of the project.
IRCICA has published the records on Al Quds in the Mühimme Registers which include the most important Ottoman documents containing Divan Al Humayun decisions as the first step of the project to publish documents in the archive concerning Al Quds. These documents which contain the decisions of the Council of Ministers at the time include the highest level decisions taken on the city by the Ottoman State. The First Volume of the Mühimme Registers include important information concerning the social, economic, cultural and architectural heritage of Al Quds in the 16th century.
IRCICA aims to highlight the history of Al Quds under Ottoman administration by presenting these documents to the attention of scholars and researchers in their originals, transcriptions, and English, Arabic and Turkish summaries. This book contains the documents in the Mühimme Registers concerning Al Quds in the 16th century. IRCICA aims to publish historical registers concerning the history of Al Quds under Ottoman rule from different centuries as soon as possible.
