EXAMPLES OF SERBIAN MIGRATIONS TO HUNGARIAN PROVINCIAL DISTRICTS 1699-1737
Keywords: Treaty of Karlowitz, migrations, Hungarian provinces
AbstractFrom the Treaty of Karlowitz to the Austro-Turkish War of 1737-1739 the migrations of Serbian people in the provincial districts of Hungary were far more modest in number than in the Migration of 1690. Based on the sources and literature we made efforts to include those particular examples and show that besides families, of which some left deep trace in Serbian history and culture (the Ruvarac family), the clergy settled here as well; and not only the clergy from Serbia, which was at one time under Austrian rule (1718-1739). Moreover, there was a great influx of merchants and craftsmen, whose settlement fortified Serbian ethnic territory in Hungary and contributed to final creation and establishment of Serbian middle class within the Monarchy. Another larger wave of migration of Serbian people in overall territory of Hungary followed the outbreak of a new Austro-Turkish war in 1737, during which Serbs were again forced to leave their homes led by patriarch Arsenije IV Šakabenta.
