In 1596, the Ottomans and a larger army succeeded in forcing Captain Nyáry of Eger to surrender after the castle was under siege for six days. Eger fell under Ottoman rule for eighty years and became the capital of an Ottoman province (vilayet). The Ottomans rebuilt the castle, turned the churches into mosques and built several other buildings, including public bathhouses and minarets.
Alphonsus Lasor a Varea was the nome-de-plume of Raffaello Savonarola (d. 1748), a close anagram of his name. The Universus terrarum orbis scriptorum ... was a historicogeographical and religious dictionary of the world, extensively illustrated with small format illustrations. Interestingly, and remarkably, the maps, plans and prospects that appear were printed from plates engraved at least a hundred years earlier, and some even earlier. The principal sources are Tomaso Porcacchi’s Le Isole più famose del Mondo, 1572, Giovanni Antonio Magini’s edition of Ptolemy’s Geografia, 1596, Nicolo Valegio’s Raccolta di le piu illustri et famose Citta di Tutto il Mondo [ca. 1595] and Giuseppe Rosaccio’s Viaggi a Costantinopoli, 1598.
