Abstract

The study and interpretation of medieval and early modern objects from Islamic lands in Europe was revived during the eighteenth century. Efforts were made to reconnect them with the historical contexts in which they were produced, and these Islamicate objects were classified and given a new place in history. With reference to well-known objects, in this seminar we will explore the approaches and new interpretations proposed.
