A Bibliography for the Biographical Books and Memoirs on Sheikhs in the Republican Era


Despite the closure of the dervish lodges in the early days of the Republic (1925), they have remained as a widely debated and popular topic from the single-party period to the present day. In this context, the biographical works and memoirs on Sufi sheikhs, written by themselves or by others, have constituted some of the most important sources for illuminating this field. The scarcity of such works throughout the Republican period-especially until the 1980s-, however, is noticeable. This study has introduced 80 works falling under this genre, which have been listed on the basis of their dates of publication.

Keywords: Dervish Lodges, Sufi Orders, Sheikh, Memoir.
