Dr. Matthew T. Herbst, Faculty Director, Making of the Modern World Program, UCSD

From an ancient Greek city, to a Roman/Byzantine imperial center, to an Ottoman capital, to today's thriving Turkish metropolis, Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) has been and remains a meeting point of cultures, continents, languages, religions, and peoples.

This lecture offers a big picture consideration of the site, and its profound, and long-lasting, impact on our world, and focuses particularly on the city's role as a center of wealth, power, and diversity in the classical age of the Ottoman Empire (i.e., the 15th-17th centuries).

This is the fourth lecture of the 2014 Friday Morning Lecture & Tour Series. Happening the third Friday of each month, each lecture focuses on works on view and is followed by a docent-led tour.
