Resumen

El imperio otomano tuvo bajo su dominio un vasto territorio que trajo consigo complejidad y diversidad. Para ejercer autoridad en múltiples zonas con características diferentes, los otomanos moldearon diversas instituciones, entre ellas el waqf. El objetivo de este estudio es analizar las maneras en que el Imperio Otomano instrumentalizó la institución del waqf para propósitos de dominación y control. Este trabajo aporta un examen de la capacidad otomana para adaptarse a diferentes circunstancias con la intención de extender su dominio. Asimismo, cuestiona el ideal caritativo del waqf mediante el tratamiento de diversas definiciones del concepto, así como su relación con los métodos de conquista y diseño de ciudades implementados por el Imperio Otomano.
