Caravanserai: Traces, Places, Dialogue in the Middle East: Traces, Places, Dialogue in the Middle East Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The caravanserai were roadside inns built to shelter men, goods, and animals along the Silk Road that connected China, Central Asia, and Europe in ancient times. These staging posts formed the worlds first globalized overland network and stand as a testament to a flourishing period of multicultural exchange in the Muslim world. Today, the ruined and restored caravanserai of Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, captured here by Belgian photographer Tom Schutyser, serve as a platform for an era of renewed cross-cultural exchange. Stunning photographs of these vanishing caravan routes and their surrounding landscapes welcome readers to engage in a dialogue on healing relations between the Muslim and Western worlds, in the same way the inns once welcomed travelers, traders, and pilgrims to share goods, ideas, and discoveries.
