This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the relation of law to morality and gender in the Ottoman court of Aintab. The findings reveal that there is no single case in the Aintab court records which provides a clear window onto this provincial society, its quotidian concerns, and its legal culture. The chapter suggests that the case of Fatma provides insights into the legal culture of sixteenth-century Aintab from the perspective of an individual unremarkable in the provincial landscape, and that it is in a sense the culmination of the work of the court as it is represented by the two well-kept registers dating from September 1540 through early October 1541.

Keywords:   law, morality, gender, Ottoman court, Aintab, provincial society, legal culture
