Natalie Rothman explores the intersecting worlds of these who on a regular basis traversed the early smooth Venetian-Ottoman frontier, together with colonial migrants, redeemed slaves, retailers, advertisement agents, non secular converts, and diplomatic interpreters. of their sustained interactions throughout linguistic, spiritual, and political strains those trans-imperial topics helped to form moving imperial and cultural limitations, together with the rising contrast among Europe and the Levant.

Rothman starts off her tale in Venice's bustling marketplaces, the place advertisement agents frequently defied the state's efforts either to tax overseas retailers and outline Venetian citizenship. the tale keeps in a Venetian charitable establishment the place converts from Islam and Judaism and their Catholic Venetian buyers negotiated their mutual transformation. the tale ends with Venice's diplomatic interpreters, the dragomans, who not just produced and disseminated wisdom in regards to the Ottomans but in addition created dense networks of kinship and patronage throughout imperial limitations. Rothman's new conceptual and empirical framework sheds gentle on institutional practices for dealing with juridical, spiritual, and ethnolinguistic distinction within the Mediterranean and beyond.
