This chapter provides a detailed description of the court of Aintab during the period 1540–1541. It describes the work of the court, the kinds of law it drew upon, and its place in the varied legal landscape. The chapter explores how the court translated the messy process of litigation into neat summary records, and considers the nature of the court's written records as well as the obstacles one encounters in interpreting them. It examines normative legal discourses as they shaped the deliberations of the court.

Keywords:   court, Aintab, legal landscape, litigation, court records, legal discourses
