An Essay on the Historiography of Law in Pre-Ottoman Times

Historiography of Turkish Law, especially that of the pre-Ottoman era, suffers a certain degree of backwardness due to its lack of conceptual framework as well as a method that goes in line with this framework. This essay comprises of two main parts, the first of which aspires to offer an approach that combines three constituting elements seen necessary for any student of Turkish law, i.e. historical research, legal history and classical law of Islam (fiqh). The second part is in fact a bibliography of Islamic law of Hanafite school. The bibliography, which includes only extants legal works, is classified according to the geographical area in which the authour of a certain legal text supposedly lived in, due to the consideration that geograpy gives a sense of contiunity more than any other considerations.
