This gorgeous, full-color photographic guide reveals the marvelous
collection of the sacred relics at the Topkapi Palace Museum in
Istanbul, which houses more than 600 invaluable belongings from
prophets such as Abraham, Moses, and Muhammad as well as a number
of Muslim saints. Excavated from the most restricted rooms of the
palace, the entire selection?including the pieces that are not on
exhibit for daily visits?is compiled here for the first time in
this fundamental handbook, making it perfect for students
interested in Ottoman history, sacred relics of the Ottoman rule,
or the broader Islamic heritage. This edition comes without the
special box that accompanied previous edition.
