About the origin of the word "Orientalists"...

To quote from the exhibition at the Walters Art Gallery, in Baltimore, Maryland; _They came to be known as "orientalisme," which originally denoted the study of languages, literature, and customs, both past and present, of people living beyond the sphere of European influence._
