Course Content (Syllabus)
Issues in the History of the Hellenism in Anatolia Period of Reforms (Tanzimat) and European economic penetration into Pontus (19th – beginning of the 20th cent.) The future and the fate of the Ottoman Empire were essentially determined in the 19th century, when the Great Powers imposed on the Sultan the implementation of an ambitious program of administrative reforms and groundbreaking changes (Tanzimat). Those reforms were favorable to the Christians of the Empire because, despite the reactions of the Muslim elite, conditions were created for their economic and social rise.
