Cover Page

Abstract


The article concerns the analysis of the role and place of the representatives of the Christian communities in the administration system of the territories, controlled by Ahmad-pasha al-Jazzar, the most powerful Syrian provincial governor in the second half of the 18 th - early 19 th centuries, in the first years of his rule. The author makes an attempt to show the influence of the changes in the organization of the provincial government in the Ottoman Empire on the position of the Syrian Christians, who traditionally had a lower status than the representatives of the Muslim community.
