Turkish Croatia and Illyrian Brothers: Bosnia in Croatian National Ideology of 1830s and 1840s

Languages of publication



The paper characterizes a position of Bosnia in Croatian national ideology of the initial period of Croatian national integration marked by the Illyrian movement of 1830s and 1840s. A primary goal of Croatian national politics in the 19th century was a restauration of a territorial integrity of the Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia a Dalmatia. Western regions of Ottoman Bosnia were considered to be an integral part of Croatian kingdom by Croatian politicians and ideologues (Turkish Croatia). Bosnia simultaneously figured in all Croatian national-integrational conceptions including Illyrism as a part of Croatian or a wider South Slavonic national territory. However, the role of Bosnia in Croatian politics and national integration in the 19th century has not been paid much attention in historiography so far. The study is based on the analysis of contemporary treatises, proclamations, brochures, articles and programmatic manifestos of political nature, as well as on the interpretation of literary works published by adherents of Illyrism.
