The Seven Sleepers of Ephesus
The story of The Seven Sleepers of Ephesus is referred to in Chapter 18 of the Quran and became a popular legend in the Muslim world as well as the Christian. Seven Christian youths refused to worship idols, and to escape the persecution of the pagan king, concealed themselves and their dog in a cave, where God miraculously put them to sleep.
When the king with his retinue tried to seize them, he found no one able to enter the cave and so had it walled up. Scholars have tried to tie the legend to historical personages; widely accepted is the identification of the pagan emperor as Dakyus or Decius (reigned 249–51) and of the Christian emperor during whose reign the sleepers awake briefly before sleeping again as Theodosius II (reigned 408–50).
The composition is dominated by the centralized near-circular cave and the figures silhouetted against the dark ground.
Courtiers dozing after a picnic of feasting and wine drinking may have served as models for the artist. The attitudes of the bodies suggest youthful relaxation while the beardless faces seem to reflect carefree dreams.
The trees and darker-hued rocks strategically placed around the cave appear to act as sentinels for the sleepers, distancing them from the pagan king and his soldiery, and, with the hidden animal faces in the rock contours, dramatizing their miraculous inviolability.
Both hadith (sayings of the Prophet), and tafsir (commentaries on the Qur'an) suggest that these verses from the Qur'an have protective qualities.
Seven Sleepers of Ephesus is an example of Islamic art dating back to the early-15th century.
