Abstract

The following article acquaints the reader with a travelogue composed by the 18th-century missionary Stephan Schultz from Halle in as far as it covers the years 1752 to 1756 when the author travelled in the Ottoman Empire. The work, written in German, is little known but is exceptional in early modern travel literature because the author knew most languages spoken in the area and was therefore able to speak with the locals. Another reason is that the author largely refrains, as it was customary, from quoting earlier works in the genre, and could therefore be considered original. The article presents and comments on some of the more interesting passages from the work which deal with, among other things, travel, contact with Ottomans and Europeans, Istanbul and the Palace, indigenous dress, and the world of Ottoman letters,
