Join us in learning the History of The Ottoman Empire, one of the strongest and longest-lasting dynasties in world history. This superpower ruled areas of the Middle East, Eastern Europe and North Africa for 600 years since 1299, ending after a slow decline during WWI. The Sultan had absolute religious and political authority. While Western Europeans viewed them as a threat, many historians regard the Ottoman Empire as a source of stability and security, and important achievements in arts, science, religion and culture. During this class we shall discuss their economic, political and cultural issues and reconsider, the rise and slow decline of this unique power. The characters will be described with gusto displaying their audacity and sometimes ruthlessness.
