The Heart Hidden in the Script – Exhibition of panels with manuscripts of Bašagič's collection
The exhibition The Heart Hidden in the Script aims to introduce the Spanish public to the unique collection of Arabic, Persian and Turkish manuscripts and prints from the eminent Bosnian writer, orientalist, museologist and politician Safvet-beg Bašagić. This collection contains, first and foremost, works from the field of religious science: the Quran, traditions, religious law, dogmatics, mystics and prayers. Alongside philosophy, works from the areas of metaphysics, logic and psychology are also included. The collection is part of the cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It has subsequently also been recognised as part of the cultural heritage of Slovakia and, through UNESCO, as world cultural heritage.
