It is aimed in this article to scrutinize reflections of dervish lodges in general and the reverend characters in the republican era Turkish novel. Yakup Kadri Karaosmano?lu’s Nur Baba (1922), Re?at Nuri Güntekin’s Ye?il Gece (1928) and Miskinler Tekkesi (1946), Refik Halit Karay’s Kad?nlar Tekkesi (1956) are handled for this purpose. The attitude that emerges in the axis of these novels against dervish lodges and reverend type, also has close ties with Early Republic Era Turkey’s ideologic stance. The authors of the selected novels on the one hand are trying to modelling the ‘true’ reverend type for the requirements of the Republic and on the orher hand, condemns existing reverends according to the ‘trues’ of the period of the time. This article tries to criticaly analyse the awry point of view that appears in selected works
