The Costume Book of Lambert de Vos is a collection of vividly hand-painted illustrations completed in 1574 by Lambert de Vos, the appointed painter at the Habsburger embassy. Rich in color and intricate details, the book stands as a significant historical record that blends Eastern and Western influences to detail the fashion and societal norms of fifteenth-century Ottoman society. The album features 103 hand-painted illustrations that not only showcase the lavish pageantry of Sultanate ceremonial processions but also outline the rigid social hierarchy of the time, with figures arranged according to their social status, encompassing both the elite religious and secular figures as well as individuals from the middle and lower classes.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
