Excerpt from Constantinople: And the Scenery of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor; Illustrated, in a Series of Drawings From Nature

Among the symptoms of growing European habits and usages, which are daily seen creeping over the metropolis of the Osmali and its vicinity, one of the most remarkable perhaps is the change Which is daily introduced into their public edifices, and the substitution of a chaste and classic, for a, fantastic Oriental style of architecture. When the rude ignorant Turks first rushed among the monuments of European art, what they did not utterly destroy, they perverted. Ionic shafts were pierce'd for cannons, Corinthian capitals were rounded into balls; and wherever they were applied to their original purpose, they were invariably inverted; and to this day are seen everywhere Turkish houses built with remains of Grecian temples, sculptured architraves laid for door-steps, and pillars standing on their smaller ends with the base uppermost, as the preferable position, I have grieved, said Gillins, not so much at the broken and prostrate monuments of ancient art, as at the barbarous, perverted uses to Which they were applied.
