Turkish Jerusalem (1516-1917)

2. CHARACTERISTICS OF INSCRIPTIONS

In this chapter the characteristics of the inscriptions are highlighted.

2.1 Royal Inscriptions in Jerusalem (Table I and 2) In Jerusalem there are 35 inscriptions of Sultan Süleyman (Table I). 26 are still in situ, 6 inscriptions are wholly or partly lost (numbers. 7, 8, 21, 28, 36 and 37). Of these nr. 7 is temporarily lost and can be dug out from the moat where it was buried in 1898. Nr. 8 Minbar of Citadel Mosque can be remade and put back in its place. Two inscriptions nrs. 28 and 36 were lost earlier but are replaced now by replicas. Inscriptions nr. 29(partly), 34 and 35 are stored in the Islamic Museum.

From the period after Sultan Süleyman's time, we have 26 Royal inscriptions (Table 2). 16 of them are still in the city, 4 inscriptions have been lost definitively (nr. 38, 46, 48 and 50), 2 are partly lost (nr. 40 and 55) and 4 inscriptions (nr. 39, 41, 43 and 52) are in the Islamic Museum along with a few remains of nr. 65.
