Dede (religious figure)

A dede is a socio-religious leader in the islamic Alevi and non-islamic Ishiki community. The institution of dede is the most important of all the institutions integral to the social and religious organization of the Anatolian Alevis. Although much weakened as a result of the socio-economic transformation experienced in Anatolia towards the end of the nineteenth century, and particularly due to accelerated migration from the rural to the urban areas after the foundation of the Republic of Turkey, it played a primary role in the survival of Alevism until today.

The institution of dedes is based on a three tiered hierarchy:

  1. Murshid
  2. Pir
  3. Rehber

In some regions this hierarchy is modified in such a way that the Pir and Murshid change places. This is exclusively a functional hierarchy, as all involved come from a dede family. They fulfill functions that are complementary in nature, and would be meaningless in isolation from each other. The dede families, all of them called ocakzâdes, have distributed these duties among themselves.

An Alevi dede focusses on the islamic mystic teachings of the Twelve Imams, the Buyruks (mainly the Imam Câfer-i Sadık Buyruğu) and Haji Bektash Veli. An Ishiki dede focusses more on esoteric beliefs and teaches that traditions and ceremonies in Alevism are pre-Islamic, coming from the religions of the Hittites and Sumerians, rejecting many teachings from Islam.
