Title Details

Running Time
33 Min.

This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called The Great Tours: Greece and Turkey, from Athens to Istanbul taught by Professor John R. Hale, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to Wondrium.

Homeland of the great Persian poet Rumi, central Turkey features a wide range of locations, from cosmopolitan cities to astonishing natural and man-made archeological sites. In this free Great Courses lecture, Professor John R. Hale serves as your field guide through his favorite destinations, including the capital Ankara, Rumi’s Konya, and the exotic Cappadocia. The highlights of this video tour include a look at Rumi’s birthplace, the otherworldly volcanic formations in Cappadocia, and a nearby underground cave network miraculously built by Christian refugees. This is an unparalleled introduction to a part of the world that goes beyond the well-traveled paths of Istanbul into a remote region that few have seen in such detail.
