(Turkish: "apostate, convert")
Jewish sect, originally adherents of the false messiah Shabtai Zvi. When Zvi converted to Islam in 1666, the d├Ânme followed their leader, but didn't renounce Judaism. The apostasy of their messiah is explained by the d├Ânme through kabbalistic esoteric ideas.
The sect is known to still exist in the Balkan and Turkey, but its extent is unknown.
