By Sheila R. Canby, Deniz Beyazit, Martina Rugiadi, and A. C. S. Peacock
The powerful and culturally prolific Seljuqs—an empire whose reach extended from Central Asia to the eastern Mediterranean— dominated the Islamic world from the eleventh to the fourteenth century. The age of the Seljuqs was one that celebrated magnificence, in this world and the celestial realm. Court and Cosmos: The Great Age of the Seljuqs examines the roots and impact of this dynasty, featuring some 250 objects as evidence of the artistic and cultural flowering that occurred under Seljuq rule, and providing an invaluable record of the Seljuqs' contribution to the cultural heritage of the Islamic world.
Sheila R. Canby is Patti Cadby Birch Curator in Charge, Deniz Beyazit is Assistant Curator, and Martina Rugiadi is Assistant Curator in the Department of Islamic Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. A. C. S. Peacock teaches Middle Eastern Studies at the University of St. Andrews, Fife.
