Bosnia (Bosna) in the wider sense includes Bosnia Proper, the Herzegovina,Turkish Croatia (Krajina), and the ancient Rascia (Sandjak Novibasar): — that is, in all, the region bounded on the N.W. and N. by Croatia and Slavonia, on the E. by Servia, on the S. by Albania (Turk. Vilayet Prisren) and Montenegro, and on the S.W. and W. by Dalmatia. This territory, covering an area of 23,853 (or, without Novibasar, 19,961) sq. M., nominally forms the N. W. vilayet of the Ottoman Empire, but in accordance with the Treaty of Berlin of 13th July, 1878, followed by the convention of 21st April, 1879, has been occupied and, with the exception of the Sandjak Novibasar, governed by Austria-Hungary, under reservation of the sovereignty of the Sultan.
Inhabitants. The population of Bosnia, excluding the Sandjak Novibasar, numbered in 1895 1,592,000, and their nationality is almost exclusively Slavonic. About 673,250 profess the GreekOriental creed, 334,140 are Roman Catholics, 548,630 Mohammedans, and 8200 Jews. The last are mainly descendants of Jewish immigrants from Spain and Portugal in the 16-17th centuries.
History. The aboriginal inhabitants of Bosnia were Illyrians (Desidiates,Ardieri,Autariates, etc.) of the Celto-Illyrian stock of the Iapodes, who dwelt in the N.W. (the present district of Bihać). Bosnia is mentioned in history for the first time in the Roman period (34 B. C.), and in close connection with Dalmatia. The Roman sway over these lands was repeatedly shaken and finally destroyed (end of the 4th cent.) by the invasions of the Goths, which were followed in 610 by an inroad of the Croatians and by another of the Servians. The S.W. part of the country embraced Christianity under Justinian (527-565), and the rest of it was converted by the Servian apostles Cyril and Methodius about the year 880. From 940 onwards Bosnia was governed by elective princes or 'bans', who afterwards became
