    A random question.

    Discussion in 'Research' started by SnipSnap, Jun 17, 2007.

    Can Anyone tell me about the religion of the Ottoman
    Empire? I"m too lazy to take a trip to Wikipedia. Thanks, that would be grand.

    The parts of your soul you refuse to recognize.
    I'm pretty sure they're Islamic.

    hmm, thank you. However, wikipedia is telling me that it started out as an empire for christianity, in which the rulers were atheistic and ruled as "chrstian caesars."

    Thanks for the info, I'll see what wiki's deal is, unless it only started out christian, and now the seljuk turks are islamic now, which they are. Yes, that may be it.

    Anyway, thankee sais.

    It all depends on when you mean. For the first thousand years it's a bit hazy, but after that it's almost exclusively Muslim. Including, of course, the time of the Crusades.

    if you're admittedly too lazy to bother looking it up on your own, why should we do it for you?

    I'm not sure that's the issue, seeing as someone did look it up for me.

    Thank you for the thought though, I'll remember it on my deathbed.

    It looks as if for the majority of it's existence it was a Muslim country.
