"Emir Timur and His Legacy Workshop" organized by TÜBA was held at TÜBA-Rabi Madrasa with the participation of academicians from different universities, TÜBA members, TÜBA Young Academy members, researchers and experts.
The results of the workshop will be turned into a book.
The workshop was organized in the historical atmosphere of TÜBA-Rabi Madrasa in Süleymaniye Complex and lasted all day long. The impact of Emir Timur, the founder of the Timurid State, who was a brave soldier, a talented administrator, a patron of scholars and artisans, and ultimately left his mark for generations. His legacy that has survived to the present day were discussed in detail.
TÜBA President Prof. Dr. Muzaffer Şeker stated that Timur's influence on religious studies, foundations, art, literature, astronomy and mathematics is a scientific reality and said: "The important examples of cities and architecture, especially in Turkistan and Iran, international diplomatic relations, military innovations, castle and city sieges, tactical and strategic transformations that developed during the Timurid period are milestones not only for that period but also for the future."
In his statement on the subject, President Şeker emphasized that various studies on the Timurids have been conducted in Türkiye and a significant literature has been created. He said that there are not enough scholarly meetings where Emir Timur and his legacy are directly discussed with the participation of experts in the field, where new ideas or different perspectives are put forward and evaluated. He emphasized that the "Emir Timur and His Legacy Workshop", organized with the support of TÜBA, made an important contribution to the elimination of this deficiency. Stating that as a result of the workshop, scientists from different disciplines who are experts on the subject were brought together and academic studies planned to be carried out on the Timurids were discussed on the table, President Şeker said that as a result of all these evaluations, TÜBA will prepare a comprehensive book.
