Abstract

NOTES ON SALDJUQ ARCHITECTURAL PATRONAGE IN THIRTEENTH CENTURY ANATOLIA BY H. CRANE (Ohio State University) The Saldjuql) monuments of thirteenth century Anatolia are today recognized as the product of what might be called a classical moment in the evolution of medieval Turkish Islamic architecture. A time of intensive building activity, the thirteenth century was also a period in which a developed formal vocabulary and great technical assurance combined to produce a distinctive and powerfully expressive style of stone architecture which is still today widely admired and encountered in of the towns of the Anatolian plateau. As the result of several decades of field survey, beginning with European scholars such as Frederich Sarre, Albert Gabriel and Kurt Erdmann and continued by Turks including Oktay Aslanapa, Aptullah Kuran and Metin S6zen, this body of monuments is today relatively well known. For the most part, however, these investigators have been architects by training, and not surprisingly this orientation is strongly reflected in their work. Hence, although considerable emphasis has been given to the formal description of monuments, lit- tle effort has been made to discuss this architecture within the broader context of the social, economic and political history of the Saldjuq
