9780892415861: The Tale of Constantinople (Of Its Origin and Capture by the Turks in the Year 1453)

There are few surviving accounts of the final siege and subsequent conquest of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. This work, by an individual known as Nestor-Iskander, is a unique testament to the event that brought an end to the millennial empire of East Rome.

This bilingual edition, published for the first time, is the work's first translation into English, presenting the original Slavic text and the translation on facing pages. It is based on the Troitse-Sergievskaia Lavra Ms. No. 773. There are extensive annotations by the editors to provide a philological and historical context.
[This is the fifth volume in the series Late Byzantine and Ottoman Studies]
