Dimitris Stamatopoulos - Professor, Department of Balkan, Slavic and Oriental Studies, University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki



This paper concerns the treatment of the Muslims of Cyprus, especially those of Larnaca, by Giovanni Mariti during his travels from Cyprus to Syria and Palestine. The analysis concentrates on issues of popular worship and how this was perceived by the Muslims of the island, as well as on matters of Ottoman administration.
