Beyond the Glory of the Sultans o Cantemir`s View of the Turks

Prince Dimitrie Cantemir (1673-1723) combined a multitude of talents in a complex personality of spiritual enlightenment and intellectual curiosity. His works form a reservoir of facts and histories that reveal surprising angles to many philosophical and cultural questions through a maze of revolving evasions in search for the deep meaning. Cantemir never ceased to amaze European and Turkish intellectuals with the wealth of his analyses and observations across interrelated areas of knowledge. The humanistic curiosity of Cantemir has no limits as he continues to move around the multifaceted points of his attention in search of the ultimate perspective to his subjects. The Turks, their actions and customs aggressive and kindly, genuine and symbolic, ordinary and majestic, stand in overwhelming light on the center stage of Cantemir`s world of configurations.


Prince Dimitrie Cantemir

The present book is not limited to the study of Cantemir`s treatise on Ottoman music. It first gives us the complete story of his eventful and dramatic life including his Russian stage and an account of his multifarious activities. In the same chapter the writer goes through not only his history of the Ottoman empire but other Cantemir books and other Romanian sources about the Prince and familiarises us with the content of these works. Her quotations from and references to various non-standard sources make this part of the book more useful and appealing. I believe this introduction will become a standard source for anybody who is to consider Cantemir`s life, his story and other works.
