Overview

Era il sultano, ma anche il califfo, protettore della Mecca; usava il titolo ancestrale di khan, che sapeva di steppa e orde nomadi, ma era anche l'erede di Roma e Bisanzio e ostentava il titolo di 'Cesare dei Cesari'. Era il Gran Turco, Solimano il Magnifico, e il suo regno rappresentava per gli europei, di volta in volta, uno specchio distorto, un incubo e una speranza, la fertile terra dei paradossi. Se in Occidente non era permessa la residenza a nessun musulmano ed era inconcepibile l'esistenza di una moschea, l'impero ottomano era invece abitato quasi per metà da cristiani, considerati, è vero, sudditi di seconda classe, ma autorizzati a praticare pubblicamente la loro religione. Solimano aveva potere di vita e di morte e tutti i suoi ministri erano giuridicamente degli schiavi; ma proprio quest'autocrazia creava la mobilità sociale, perché non esisteva nobiltà di nascita ma un sistema di selezione dei talenti che permetteva a figli di pastori di diventare pascià e visir, con grande scandalo degli osservatori europei. Si spiega così che tanti marinai, artigiani, fonditori di cannoni scegliessero di 'farsi turchi', cercando sotto la protezione del sultano un'ascesa sociale impensabile nell'Europa delle gerarchie nobiliari e del diritto di sangue.
