|This study deals with the impact of the Ottoman conquest of Egypt in 1517 on its political, religious and social institutions, their transition from the Mamluk to the Ottoman regime and further development up to the 17th century. The study is based mainly on waqf (Islamic trusts) documents. Attention is paid to the Ottoman administration, the legal system, the religious establishment, the military aristocracy, the waqf under Ottoman rule, a number of important waqf documents, and the impact of the Ottoman conquest on Cairo and its architecture, particularly mosques and mausoleums.
