This lecture intends to shed light on the interrelationships between the provinces that today constitute “Libya” and the Ottoman Empire as they developed during the late Ottoman period, in the Age of Reforms, after the promotion of the Tanzîmât, from 1835 to 1912. Particular attention will be paid to the reframing and the evolution of Ottoman–“Libyan” relationships and interactions at the time of the “Question d’Orient” (Eastern Question).
