New PDF release: Michael el-Hakim: Der Renegat des Sultans (Mika Waltaris

By Mika Waltari,Andreas Ludden

Ein Roman, spannend und phantastisch wie die Märchen aus Tausendundeiner Nacht. Der Leser wird ins sixteen. Jahrhundert zurückversetzt. Christen und Mohammedaner ringen in Europa und dem Nahen Osten um die Vorherrschaft. Wien, Konstantinopel, Aleppo und Bagdad erstehen in ihrer Pracht, Leichtlebigkeit und Verderbtheit. Der Autor schickt seine beiden Helden in einen ihnen bisher fremden Kulturkreis, in die islamische Welt Nordafrikas und nach Istanbul, der Hauptstadt des Osmanischen Reiches, das damals unter Sultan Süleyman I., »dem Prächtigen«, seine größte Ausdehnung und Blütezeit erlebte.
Michael und Antti wollen von Venedig aus zu einer Pilgerfahrt ins Heilige Land aufbrechen. Das Pilgerschiff wird von islamischen Piraten gekapert und die beiden Protagonisten entgehen dem Tod nur dadurch, dass sie ihrer christlichen faith abschwören und den Islam annehmen. Nun beginnen ihre Abenteuer in der islamischen Welt. Beide, sowohl Michael als auch Antti, steigen, obwohl nominell Sklaven, letzten Endes in hohe und geachtete Stellungen auf. Wie die beiden Helden in die ihnen anfangs völlig fremde Kultur und faith hineinwachsen, ist eines der großen Themen dieses Romans.
Michael leidet zunächst unter schlimmen Gewissensqualen - schließlich hatte er einst davon geträumt, eine Laufbahn als Geistlicher der allein seligmachenden Kirche einzuschlagen! Doch mit dem ihm eigenen Wissensdurst eignet er sich schnell die arabische und die türkische Sprache an und macht sich mit dem Inhalt des Korans sowie der islamischen Glaubenspraxis vertraut. Immer wieder stellt er verwundert fest, welch Unterschied zwischen dem Osmanischen Reich und den christlichen Ländern Europas besteht, werden in den letzteren doch blutige Glaubenskriege ausgetragen, und erst recht ist unter den Christen und ihren Fürsten kaum eine Spur von religiöser Toleranz zu finden.
