Translating Islamic Piety with Greek Aljamiado: The case of Şânî’s Compendium

William C. Stroebel, University of Michigan

Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication

This talk will engage an early codex of Greek Aljamiado—i.e., Greek in the Arabic script: the Compendium of Şânî in the Greek Tongue, written in the mid-seventeenth century. Translating and adapting several Arabic and Turkish sources into rhymed Greek couplets, Şânî wrote this work for his fellow Greek-speaking Muslims, who were otherwise excluded from the Arabic- and Turkish-language scholarly apparatus of Ottoman Islam.
