HAMZEVI DERVISHES IN THE NOVELS OF MEŠA SELIMOVIĆ AND DERVIŠ SUŠIĆ
MetadataShow full item record
The foundation of the hamzevi dervish order is connected with Bosnian Hamza Bali Orlović, who was born in the first half of the 16th century, probably in the village of Orlović near Vlasenica, and was executed in 1573 in Istanbul, on charges of heresy, but the real reasons for his executions actually were political – because of the socio-political engagement of his order in Bosnia under the Ottoman rule. We hereby present hamzevi dervishes as bearers and symbols of resistance and rebellion in the novels of Bosnian writers, Tvrđava (The Fortress) by Meša Selimović (1970) and Hodža Strah (Hoxha Fear) by Derviš Sušić (1973).
