The transformation of a small emirate, situated on the south-eastern border of the Byzantine state, into the powerful Ottoman empire, which succeeded that of Byzantium and exerted a powerful impact on the Western Christian world for several centuries, constitutes a phenomenon with a variety of aspects. The theories of the great historians M. F. Koprulu and P. Wittl(k, both put forward in the 1930s, have recently been challenged. On the other hand, recent findings and subsequent studies have provoked further discussions with new arguments and provided additional expla-nations. The role of the dervishes in the formation of the Ottoman emirate has been stressed. Coins have been found which shed new light on the humble beginnings of the fourteenth-century Turkish emirs. Texts relating to religion and the holy war have been discovered. Cadasters or land censuses have clarified early institutions. Thus a re-examination of the history of the emirate which was to develop into an empire became a desideratum.
