Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad bin Saqr bin Khalid bin Sultan bin Saqr bin Rashid Al Qasimi, 79, has a vast work published in the fields of history, political geography, cartography, literature and theatre. “It is a production that reveals the breadth of his cultural interests and sensitivity to some of the great contemporary challenges”, says the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Coimbra, highlighting also the “very rich collection” (of books, manuscripts and cartography) concerning the Portuguese presence in the Middle East in the 16th and 17th centuries, which the sheikh gathered at the Gulf Studies Centre.
