Abstract [en]

“Razin the Ottoman”: Razin as a Turk in the German press, 1670–1671.

This article examines the “orientalized” image of Stepan Razin in the German press of the years 1670–1671. The news about Stepan Razin’s rebellion appeared in a number of early modern German newspapers, leaflets, and pamphlets. Surprisingly, they often reported about an alleged alliance between the Don Cossacks and the nomads – Crimean Tatars or Kalmyks – or even the Turks. The article deals with possible sources of such rumours. One of them might have been a misinterpretation by European readers of the Cossack term „ataman“, which could have been erroneously recognized as the word “Ottoman”, i. e. “Turk”. This error probably gave birth to the fantastic “Turkish-like” image of Stepan Razin, which can be seen in a number of German engraved portraits of this Cossack rebel. One of these engravings, depicting Razin together with a Jewish “Messiah”, Schilo Sabbatai, is being published for the first time in a scholarly article.
