Muallims of Gazi Husrev-bey maktab in the 20th century

  • Osman Lavić, mr. Gazi Husrev-begova biblioteka


Gazi Husrev-bey's maktab, founded by the first endowment chart from 1531, remained a relatively modest part of the largest vakf in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Some information is known about the building itself, while there is little information about the muallims and the work of this maktab. There is still a period of 200 years for which we do not have reliable data on maktab muallims. The documents presented here about the three so far unknown muallims fill this void to a certain extent and testify about the high ranking of this institution and the education of its muallims.

The paper presents original documents on the life and work of the unknown muallims of Gazi Husrev- bey's maktab, hajji hafiz Yusuf-effendi and his son Haji Ibrahim Hakki. Their private libraries were also presented, and on the basis of kasam defters and other documents, data on this ulama family from Šejh Feruh mahale in Sarajevo in the XIX century were supplemented.
