Following the first Ottoman siege of Vienna in 1529, the printing presses brought endless prayer sheets, pamphlets and books concerning the 'infidel' threat of the 'Turke' before the English public in the vernacular for the first time. This volume traces the shifting notion of the 'Turke' in English culture throughout the sixteenth century, revealing the central place this figure came to occupy.
