Summary This lavishly illustrated volume presents the major surviving monuments of the early period of the Rum Seljuqs, the first major Muslim dynasty to rule Anatolia. Studies the key monuments built for the Rum Seljuq sultans, 1170?1220 This lavishly illustrated volume presents the major surviving monuments of the early period of the Rum Seljuqs, the first major Muslim dynasty to rule Anatolia. A much-needed overview of the political history of the dynasty provides the context for the study of the built environment which follows. The book addresses the most significant monuments from across the region: a palace, a minaret and a hospital are studied in detail, along with an overview of the decorative portals attached to a wide array of different building types. The case studies are used to demonstrate the key themes and processes of architectural synthesis and development that were under way at the time, and how they reflect the broader society. Key Features Presents buildings never previously published in English: the Kilij Arslan II palace kiosk in Konya, the minaret of the Sivas Great Mosque and the nearby ?Izz al-Din Kay Kawus I hospital and tomb complex Covers the whole region, rather than the buildings of just one city or one ruler Gives a clear and concise history of the period 1170?1220 Includes over 150 line drawings and photographs, predominantly in colour Richard P. McClary is currently a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, conducting research into the medieval Muslim funerary architecture of Central Asia.
