The Web of Relations in Saint George's Festival on Princes Island in Istanbul
This chapter describes contemporary Greek Orthodox celebrations on an island in the Bosporus that are attended by many Muslims from Istanbul, few of whom have any knowledge of the Christian faith. It draws on archival evidence to investigate the nature of syncretic activities in the late Ottoman years and finds that there was neither a crude antagonism nor the full positive embrace of “the other” that some nostalgic romanticists imagine.
