Constantinople-bound by train, Ramsay resolved to keep a journal of his Turkish adventures and the daily life of the locals. A fascinating analysis of the culture of Turkey at the turn of the twentieth century, this volume peers into the religion of the city, Christians of that time, and records conversations of Ramsay and his wife with Turks. Asia Minor during and after the revolution is also recorded.

About William Mitchell Ramsay
William Mitchell Ramsay (1851–1939) was born in Glasgow, Scotland. His education took place at Oxford, the University of Aberdeen, and Gottingen, and he later went on to become Professor of Humanity at University of Aberdeen, as well as the first ever Professor of Classical Archaeology at Oxford. Perhaps most well-known for his archaeological endeavors, he traveled extensively throughout Asia Minor, studying the missionary journeys of Paul and conducting archaeological research, writing numerous books on the findings and adventures of his studies, including St. Paul the Traveller and Roman Citizen. His original intent in his studies was to disprove Christianity through archaeology, but through his research he realized that the Bible was accurate and converted to Christianity.
