The long-held narrative of an uncompromising sectarian division between the Sunni Ottoman and the Shia Safavid Empires emerged as a product of their escalated rivalry in the late fifteenth century. Ayse Baltacioglu-Brammer’s book project examines the surrounding historical period and the formation (and reformation) of sectarian narratives and their enmeshment with nonsectarian issues.
