During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Ottoman empire posed a clear and present danger to Christian rule in Europe. While English commerce with the Mediterranean world expanded, Ottoman forces invaded Greece, Hungary, and Austria. At the same time, 'Turkish' pirates and renegades from North Africa roamed the Atlantic and raided the coast of England. The threat was ideological as well: English sailors captured by Barbary pirates sometimes renounced their faith and converted to Islam. Here, three important early modern 'Turk' plays -Robert Greenes 'Selimus, Emperor of the Turks' (1594); Robert Dabornes 'A Christian Turned Turk' (1612); and Philip Massingers 'The Renegado' (1623) -are available for the first time. These texts represent Islamic power and wealth in scenes of piracy on the high seas, on-stage execution by strangulation, and rites of religious conversion. The plays are set in historical and cultural context by Daniel J. Vitkuss clear and thoughtful introduction. These carefully edited, annotated, modern-spelling editions are particula
