ISTANBUL—

Watchers see Turkey's failed coup and the subsequent purge carried out by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as part of a battle among Islamists whose ultimate vision is to allow for a greater role of religion in public life.

The lira depreciated to a record low against the dollar last week and the worst equity selloff since 2008 wiped about $36 billion from the stock market as investors fretted over the fallout from the coup attempt.
