Sultan Mehmed II, the Magnus Princeps Bronze Relief and an Imperial Vision

Lecture by Christopher Eimer, FSA

Preserved in the permanence of bronze, the Magnus Princeps relief casts light upon a period of Ottoman history largely darkened by the absence of other iconographic evidence; and though seemingly of common medallic form, all is not as it may first appear.

No Ballot Scheduled.
