Bałkański tygiel kultur i konfesji w dziewiętnastowiecznych relacjach polskich podróżników
Balkan melting pot of cultures and denominationsin light of the 19th-century works of Polish travellers
Languages of publication
Out of numerous available Polish trip descriptions written at the end of the 19th century we have chosen the works by three Jesuits, Marcin Czermiński, Jan Badeni, and Julian Antoni Łukaszewicz, and a historian and ethnologist Aleksander Jabłonowski. Those works were by no means accidental: all the authors were experts in the matter of specific Balkan culture. We particularly analyse the authors’ interesting remarks on different denominations: Catholicism, Greek Orthodox Church, Islam and Judaism and relationships between members of these denominations. In their works the Polish authors frequently referred to the existing feeling of Slavic unity. At the same time they noticed the complexity of historical and political backgrounds which were then easily perceived in the region.
