Mecmua

Description

The digital versions of so-called mecmuas (miscellaneous works collected by one or several authors mainly for private use) grew out of the project Early Modern Ottoman Culture of Learning: Popular Learning between Poetic Ambitions and Pragmatic Concerns (funded by the Austrian Science Fund) which explores aspects of the culture of learning in early modern Ottoman society, in particular those areas of learning used and cultivated outside the official Ottoman institutions of learning, the medreses. The main sources used in the project for this investigation are the encyclopaedia Netaic ül-fünun of the 16th century scholar and poet Nevi and a number of mecmuas (collective writings) preserved in the Austrian National Library and the Haus-, Hof- und Staatsarchiv in Vienna (the Austrian State Archives).
