This article introduces an anonymous illuminated manuscript created in Venice for Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent prior to his second military campaign against the Habsburgs in Hungary and Austria in 1532. The manuscript is a panegyric in honor of the Ottoman sultan. Although written in Italian and by a Venetian author, the text proposes that no other monarch from that time was worthy of being called “Emperor of the World” but Süleyman. This paper explores the relationship between Venice and the Islamic world in the years that followed the Ottomans’ military advances into Eastern Europe. It also addresses the question of cross-cultural artistic exchanges between both courts, specifically the use of European symbols of power and imperial regalia by Süleyman’s grand vizier Ibrahim Pasha (g.v. 1523–36) and his Pera-born adviser, Alvise Gritti, to communicate effectively the claim for world dominion suggested in the manuscript.
