Abstract

After a brief introduction on the position of the “communes/communities” – and of its communal leadership (kodjabashis) – in the interpretative tradition of Greek historiography, the characteristics of the kodjabashis (as communal leaders and dominant social elite) within the community and the englobing society, as well as their role in the Ottoman tax administration and state structure will be analysed. Their political role and the conditions for the reproduction of their political and social position will also be examined, as will the study of intra-communal conflicts, their causes and functions. Finally, some concrete examples of community tax functions (such as the cases of Hydra or Zagora on Pelion) as well as the classic example of the communal structure of the Peloponnesian taxation and administrative System in the second period of Ottoman domination (1715-1821) will be explored.
