Extract

Historians of the Ottoman Empire is an online encyclopedia project whose first articles were recently published. The project aims to provide comprehensive information on the lives and works of Ottoman historians, who spent most, or at least a significant part, of their lives as Ottoman subjects. All articles will be published online as a searchable database and will be available free of charge. Once published, the articles will be kept up-to-date through constant revisions.

1 Among other works which deal with the subject in a less comprehensive manner and thus have not become standard reference works are: 1) von, Ottocar M.Schlechta-Wssehrd’s rarely found and rarely used work entitledDie osmanischen Geschichtsschreiber der neueren Zeit (Vienna, 1856)Google Scholar, comprised of short biographies of historians who produced their sholarly works between 1774–1826. An interesting aspect of this particular work is its author’s detailed description of contents of manuscripts located in his own library; 2) Mehmed Cemaleddin’s Ayine-i Zürefa, which has later been expanded and published with the title Osmanli Tarih ve Müverrihleri, includes the biographies of 57 historians (Istanbul, 1314/1896) (new edition: Istanbul, 2003). I have not had the chance to consult Smirnov’s, V.D.Ocherk istorii tureckoj literatury (Petersburg, 1891).Google Scholar
