#didyouknow: In 1488, at a time when Europe was surrounded by omens and darkness, Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II established a modern psychiatric hospital applying musical treatment. During that time, the doctors in Europe would throw psychiatric patients in dungeons to rid them of evil omens, here in the Ottoman hospitals they would be treated with classical music therapy.
