    Sinopse

    The Greek settlement on the Bosphorus, called Byzantinum, became famous as the capital of two great empires. Under East Roman and later Byzantine emperors, the city christened Constantinople by Constantine the great became the heart of the ByzantineEmpire. Following conquest by the Ottomans in 1453, they, too, chose the legendary metropolis as the center of their empire, and named is Istanbul. Over a period of more than sixteen centuries, this city remained the focal point and mirror of two world empires that extended over two continents and controlled the eastern Mediterranean, the Balkans and North Africa. Constantinople, declared the capital of the empire in 330 by Constantine the Great, was intended to become a second Rome, the new capital of the Christianized Roman Empire. The numerous churches and monasteries of the Middle Ages, richly decorated with Byzantine mosaics, greatly influenced and character of the city. Many of the illuminate manuscript and icons that are now distributed among museums throughout the entire world were also created in this period. From the thirteenth century onward, the Ottomans had been advancing from Asia Minor in the direction of Europe. The art of the Ottoman Empire, permeated by Arab and Persian forms, made a lasting mark on the city's appearance over several centuries. In the sixteenth century, the era of Süleyman the Magnificent, gorgeous mosques were created in the Empire style. The decorative arts, including calligraphy, illuminationsand miniature painting, textiles and carpet weaving, flourished. The buildings of the Ottoman baroque and the architecture of the eighteenth century even today bear witness to the exceptional splendor of the metropolis on the Bosphorus into the twentieth century. The many faces and priceless artistic treasures of this historical city are brought together in this volume.
