This thesis focuses on the Anonymous Battalname of 1436-7, examining its components in regard to religious conversion narratives as well as Ghazi and Ghazi-King concepts. The first chapter aims to analyze different conversion narratives within the manuscript, especially conversion narratives involving coercive, voluntary and institutional elements. By doing so, it attempts to examine the possible values within the narrative by their relations to the syncretic nature of the early Ottoman period. The second chapter aims to place the Anonymous Battalname of 1436-7 to it’s context by examining the ghazi and ghazi-king identities of the narrative. To achieve it, this chapter analyzes different levels of authority and different levels of contextual layers, namely: the Caliph, the ruler and the champion.
