Turcica, 48, , p. Examples from Ottoman archival documents can complete the picture. Examining archival documents on procuring and prostitution from the early modern age to the late imperial era, I argue that there was indeed both change and continuity in procuring and prostitution from earlier times to the period under discussion. I shall show that there were some other differences, firstly between kanuns of the early modern age and of the modern and late imperial era.
The same goes for the kanuns and their practices. Abu Hanifa considered prostitution to be legal since the fee that a customer paid to a prostitute was like a dowry and brought quasi-ownership. Also, see Zilfi, Women and Slavery, p. For instance, an article in the Kanunname of Selim II r. But people should wait for a few days since the culprit can repent and behave well, and if she or he does not, then they can expel him or her. In this respect, and as Imber points out, kanunnames especially singled out procuring rather than prostitution as a crime because prostitution was not a criminal offense unless there was a complaint.
Despite this general patronizing attitude toward victims and punitive attitude toward procurers and sellers, as documents from different periods indicate, the Ottoman authorities were not always equally harsh or toler- ant towards procurers. First, there was a sharp difference between the early modern age and the modern age, especially from the eighteenth century onwards.
In practice, the most common punishment for procuring was neither exposing to public igno- miny nor fines, but rather expulsion from the neighborhood. Even though procurers were mostly punished by expulsion, Semerdjian notes that an earlier record of March gives an example of a different penalty for procuring. She writes that in March , upon the testimony of Yahya, the Imam of Kandiye Vezir Mosque and some other people, Ali, a Jewish convert who continued to invite foreigners to his house, let them drink with his wife and display immoral behavior despite earlier warnings, was sen- tenced to penal servitude.
