It is the beginning of an anti themosque, says Muezzi, an artist and historian who spent two years researching the history of the Ottoman Empire.
“It’s a cultural phenomenon.
I don’t want to be a victim, I want to make a contribution.”‘
The end of an era’: ‘The Ottoman Empire has been hijacked’ Istanbul is a city, an ancient city, a place of power, culture and spirituality.
Today, it’s in the grip of a crisis.
“The Ottoman empire has been stolen,” says Mueszzin.
“And the problem is that we have to reclaim it.
The end of the era is in sight.”
Mueszzi’s latest book is a history of Istanbul’s religious revival.
‘Istanbul was born a city’It is the second book Mueszzi has published.
His first was on the Turkish Renaissance, which started in the 14th century.
He has also written two books about the Ottoman empire: The Conquest of Constantinople in 1207 and the Ottoman Wars of Religion in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The Ottoman Wars were a bloody war between the Ottoman and the Muslim Ottomans in the 16th century that ended in the Ottoman surrender in 1603.
Muezzi says he has no regrets about his work on the Ottoman period, as long as he does his best to explain the context.
We want to tell the history, not the story.
It is a matter of the history itself, not of history as a whole.
The fact that I did this history makes it easier for me to understand it.
I would not want to take the history down a path that I think will be a dead end.
There are other historical voices, but not as prominent as Mueszy.
A young Turkish-American author, Muezza’s research is focused on the period from 1521 to the early 19th century, a period that saw the first Muslim conquest of Constantinople.
In his latest book, Mueszi, an ethnic Turkish from Philadelphia, takes a look at the events surrounding the Ottoman sieges and the rise of the Ottoman empire.
The new book, which is a companion to his new Turkish-language book, Istanbul: The City of History, will be published in April, and it will be available in the US and Canada, as well as Europe.
