The notion of “the Turk” in the eyes of Europe is something which still exists today. This collection of articles hopes to understand the process by which the image of “the Turk” developed in Europe starting in the 15th century and through to the present. This work fits into the greater context of early European-Ottoman relations, as the Turkish empire grew to be the strongest power on the continent while Christendom was split into a multitude of different kingdoms. The notion of “the Turk” had implications in the cultural sphere, not just the political, and Historical Image of the Turk in Europeseeks to address these as well. The authors focus on the Italian, Renaissance and Birtish representations of the Ottoman Turks in addition to European, especially German, views of Turks in the post-Ottoman era.
