0 O INTERIOR OF THE MOSQUE OF SULTAN ACHMET I, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOSQUES INCONSTANTINOPLE "The mosques are the noblest, worthiest monuments of the Ottomans. With a care which they have never expended onkiosk or palace, and with an art which found in such constructions its deepest inspiration and loftiest destiny, they have sought tomake their mosques as sublime and lasting as the human mind could devise and the human hand could execute. Like theclassic Greeks, they have consecrated their best to the service of their faith."-Edwin A. Grosvenor in "Constantinople."
