Zijne Majesteit Fatih Sultan Mehmet II
Zevende Sultan van het Osmaanse Huis


  De 7de sultan van het Osmaanse Huis en de veroveraar van Constantinopel (Istanbul).

  Edict in Greek of Sultan Mehmed II the Conqueror

(St Paul's Monastery, Archives Greece, Paper, 26.3 x 12.5 cm)

The Sultan orders 25 September 1451 the Protos and the Holy Synaxis of Mount Athos to respect the distribution of lands made during the reign of Sultan Murad II, and in particular to return to the Monastery of St Paul certain pastures seized from it. Although this document, which was delivered in Edirne (Adrianople, then the Ottoman capital) begins with the calligraphic sign of the Sultan, it is written in Greek. The Sultans frequently used Greek for official documents within the Empire and for their foreign correspondence (e.g. with Venice). Bibliography: Binon 1942, pp. 295-8.
