Vatroslav Jagic



Vatroslav Jagi (July 6, 1838 - August 5, 1923), was a Croatian language researcher and the world most famous expert in the area of the Slavic languages (Slavistics) in willard2267the second half of the 19th century.

Life

Jagi was born in Varazdin where he attended the elementary school and is the place where he started his middle school education. He finished that level of education at Gymnasium (school) in Zagreb. Having the particular interest in philology, he moved to Vienna where he was lectured slavistics under the guidance of Franz Miklosich. He continued studies and defended his doctoral dissertation Das Leben der Wurzel de in Croatischen Sprachen - Leipzig (Germany) in 1871. Upon finishing the studies Jagi returned to Zagreb where in the period between 1860 - 1870 he held the position of the professor at Gymnasium. With the year 1869, Jagi was elected full member of the national and correspondent member of the Academy of Sciences in Petrograd (Russia). Next year, 1871, he became the professor of Slavistics in Odessa and worked also in Berlin where he moved in 1874 to become the very first professor of Slavistics on prestigious Humboldt University. Jagi held the mentioned post until 1880 when he moved again and became teacher at the University baxter5gfpof Petrograd. In 1886 he returned to Vienna where his studies started to be replacement for retiring former lecturer Mikloi at the University of Vienna. Here he educated, researched, published and worked until his own retirement in 1908. The Slavist died in Vienna but was put to rest in native Varadin.

Works

Works on the literature and language written by Jagi started to be published for the first time in the reports of the Gymnasium where he worked. In 1863, with his fellow researchers Franjo Torbar and Franjo Racki he initiated a journal named Knjievnik. Within, he published several articles regarding the problematic of the grammar, syntax as well that one of history of the language used by Croats. His works were noticed within the Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts (JAZU) founded in Croatia in 1866. His works and polemics were mainly related to verbs, its paleography, acrobat downloadvocalization of the language, folk poetry and its sources. At that time he also initiated publishing the collection of the works written by old Croatian writers. In Berlin, he initiated publishing Archive fuer slavische Philologie (Archives for Slavic Philology), and kept editting it acrobat readerfor 45 years. The very periodical adobe acrobat readerfocused the attention of scholars and that one of ordinary people to Slavs, increased their interest in Slav language and their culture. It also confirmed the inportance of Slavistic, its methodology and validity as the scientific discipline of his own. While in Vienna, his intention was to write an encyclopedia related to the philology of the Slavs. This idea caused him to write Istorija slavjanskoj filologii (History of Slavic philology). Book was published in Petrograd in 1910 and contains the retrospective on the development of Slavistics since beginning to the end of 19th adobe acrobat downloadcentury. Jagis work is impressive in scope and quality: Croatian linguist Josip Hamm has remarked that Jagis collected works would, put together, number more than 100 volumes of large format. adobe acrobat free download

Interests

He was very interested in the language of old Slavs (staroslavenski jezik, Old Church Slavonic), concluded and proved that it did not originate in the central plains of Pannonia as most of experts claimed, but in southern Macedonia. Jagi was interested in the life and work of Juraj Krizanic (1618-1683), a Dominican priest who had shown considerable interest in Pan-Slavism and the cooperation of Catholicism and Orthodoxy. He spent greater portion of his life out of Croatia but promoted it through his lecturing and was always in touch adobe acrobat reader free downloadwith events relating to the language and culture at home. Politically, he was a person often criticized for being insensitive and lacking in action and involvement politically beneficial for the Croats. However, this opinion, although not without foundation, when dispassionately analyzed, has lost much of its edge: Jagis numerous articles and books on Croatian language, its grammatical structure and historical morphology recorded in earliest written works had done much to ascertain and chart the continuity of modern Croatian standard language with its medieval and Renaissance vernacular origin.
