The Culture of Sectarianism
University of California Press

This chapter tells the story of the most sustained popular mobilization in nineteenth-century Mount Lebanon, recognizing from the outset that it is implicated in another tale of the unfolding of the Tanzimat. It begins with a discussion of a crisis in local representation that was sparked by the revolt, by examining rebel demands and the Khazin reaction to the rebellion. The chapter elaborates on the implications of Shahin's movement for modern Ottoman subjecthood (and citizenship) by analyzing Ottoman responses to the rebellion. It aims to depict the overlapping social and religious layers and the limits inherent in modern sectarian identity.

Keywords:   Mount Lebanon, Tanzimat, revolt, Khazin reaction, rebellion, Shahin's movement, modern Ottoman subjecthood, modern sectarian identity
