Michael opens issues of the nineteenth century and analyses major revolts on the island during the first half of this century. The topics examined in the articles included in this special issue vary and are concerned with many different aspects of Ottoman and Cypriot history.

This alone makes the interpretation of the archivjm deve- lopments on the island more complete and, in any case, closer to the reality revealed by the Ottoman sources. As for the Cypriot merchants visiting and trading in Aleppo, there are only a few records available. Although the state gave great importance to the cizye tax, from time to time, there were problems related to its collection.

Stelios Irakleous derives his information from Karamanlidika documents and re- examines the connection between the Turcophone Christian Orthodox cleric Serapheim Attaliates and Kykkos Monastery in Cyprus.

The next study, written by Styliani Lepida, derives arcnivum information aechivum the data given by the detailed poll-tax register of Mufassal Cizye Defteri and publis- hed Ottoman documents of the most important monastery of the Ottoman period in Cyprus, the Kykkos Monastery.
