This costume book represents the fusion of the Orient and the Occident (the West) and contains valuable information regarding the design and clothing customs of people during the 15th century. Our codex holds a unique place amongst the preserved costume books that exist because it was hand-painted in 1574 by the painter of the Habsburger embassy, Lambert de Vos.

103 Pictures of the Dazzling Splendour of the Osmanian Empire

This rich album captivates one with its high level of artistic quality. There are 103 large-sized pictures all together showing the stringently defined hierarchical order involved in the ceremonial horse ridden procession of the Sultans. This procession was highly-stylized under Süleyman the Magnificent and represented the manifestation of the splendour and glory of the Osmanian Empire. The Sultan rulers’ following was ranked according to a social class system; religious and secular dignitaries, men and women of middle class, lower class members and provincials. The vibrantly colourful costume book of Lambert de Vos not only gives one a view of the dress and mode found within the Osmanian Empire, but in addition, it provides one with an overview of the hierarchical arrangement of community and of a society strongly influenced by the West.

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.
