Kadizade Mehmed (1582-1635) was a preacher who retrospectively came to be seen as the founding father of a Muslim revivalist movement that had a major impact in seventeenth-century Ottoman public life — and, arguably, beyond. This presentation will introduce him as an early modern reformer of Islam and interpret him, as well as several other figures and socio-economic and intellectual developments of the period between 1580 and 1826, as constituents of an Ottoman early modernity that prepared the ground for the nineteenth-century transformation of Islam into the “religion” we came to know.
