About The Book
The buildings of Sinan (c. 1490-1588) are ranked with the finest monuments of Renaissance Europe. He was born in Cappadocia, probably into a Greek Christian family. Drafted into the Janissaries during his adolescence, he rapidly gained promotion and distinction as a military engineer. He was appointed Court Architect in 1538 and held that post for the most productive, brilliant half-century in Ottoman architecture. His palaces, mosques, fountains, hospitals and tombs completely changed the face of the Ottoman capitals, Istanbul and Edirne. Though little is known of Sinan's personal life, J. M. Rogers has reconstructed his professional biography from his practice and that of the Court Architects after him. The detailed building accounts of the Süleymaniye in Istanbul—one of Sinan's greatest mosques—demonstrate his masterly coordination of planning, quantity surveying, work force management, and design and implementation of waterworks, that enabled this vast project to be completed in just seven years.

About Author
J. M. Rogers was the first holder of the Nasser D. Khalili Chair in Islamic Art and Archaeology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. This book is no. 3 in the ''Makers of Islamic Civilization' series, run by the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. Published jointly by Oxford University Press (Delhi) and I.B. Tauris (London), these books are written by specialists for the general reader. They are intended to serve as an introduction to pivotal Islamic thinkers and actors, whose works and legacy make up the pool of cultural experiences and resources on which contemporary Muslims continue to draw.
