Further Observations On The ‘Çoban Mustafa Paşa’ Mosque At Gebze

Barakat, Heba Nayel
The concern of this paper is to contribute to the double controversy confronting researchers when approaching the complex of Çoban Mustafa Paşa; the first being the problem of its attribution to an architect and secondly, the degree to which the marble work is of late Mamluk origin. The architecture, material and structural decoration of the Çoban Mustafa Paşa mosque found at Gebze can be considered a traditional monument of the early 16th century in Anatolia. It's structural decorations such as the portal, minbar and mihrab, all follow a relatively common theme, which can be considered a continuation of the Ottoman decorative tradition. The mosque also shows in its structural material and plan type; the domed square construction, close relation to the manner followed by the Ottoman master builders and later by Architect Sinan, in the use of stone and alternative stone and brick walls. The applied decoration, on the other hand is unique to Ottoman Turkey. Hardly any other example can be seen in Anatolia, comparable in their amounts of polychrome marble, nor in their decorative patterns, to those at the mosque of Çoban Mustafa Paşa. The wall lining of the mosque in marble, is not found elsewhere in the complex. It therefore has no logical chronology with Anatolian decorative tradition, and leads the researcher to look elsewhere for comparative materials.

Starting from this point, the thesis provides a detailed observation and documentation of the ...
