THE TITLES, FUNCTIONS AND FORMULAS THAT WERE USED IN ALGERIA DURING THE OTTOMAN PERIOD

The purpose of this article is to define the titles, functions and formulas that were used in Algeria during the Ottoman period, based on the texts written on the funeral steles, these represent a register gathering an indefinite number of titles of sovereigns, administrators, military, merchants, religious, whose historical sources do not mention them, so we will be able to complete the register of the names of all persons who have played an important role in the administration of the Algerian state. The study of the titles, functions and religious formulas inscribed on the funeral steles allows us to give a true image of the Algerian state during the Ottoman period and its legal, military, religious and civil governmental apparatus. Almost all of these funeral steles are preserved in Algerian museums such as: the National Public Museum of Antiquities of Algiers and the National Public Museum of Tlemcen, however, some of them are kept in private cemeteries in the cities of Algiers and Constantine.

Keywords: Ottomans Titles, Religious Formulae, Alger, Constantine, Tlemcen.
