Ottoman Empire- kobie

The West improved agricultural methods while technology and industry advanced rapidly, all tied to the new scientific experimentation and rationalist attitudes stemming from the Renaissance and Reformation and culminating in the Enlightenment; only weak echoes of these events reached the East before 1800.

Ethnic Groups- People of the Ottoman Empire, in addition to Turks, included many Arabs, Armenians, Greeks, and Slavs. The official language was Ottoman Turkish.

Arts- the Ottomans adopted many styles of Byzantine and Persian art and literature. Major Ottoman contributions came in the fields of architecture, carpetweaving, and tile making.

The Ottoman Empire

Religious practice- Most Muslims strictly followed the rules of Islam as set down in their holy book, the Qur’an. The Ottomans allowed all religious groups to practice their own faiths. Christians and Jews made up the largest non-Muslim groups. Each religious group, including the Muslims, formed millet (nation), whose leader represented its members before the government.

During the 1600's, the Ottoman Empire was the world's largest empire. It had its capital in Istanbul and covered parts of Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. The picture above is a map of the Ottoman Empire, and all the cities and dynasties it took over.
