This paper analyzes the travels of Ruđer Bošković (1711-1787) and Dositej Obradović (1739/42-1811). Bošković was a scientist renowned throughout Europe, whose trips were financed by institutions, and had precise, scientific purposes. Obradović traveled at his own expense, in order to become familiar with other cultures, and he was prompted by a desire to transfer this knowledge to his people. Bošković’s and Obradović’s common urge to travel resulted in their journeys intersecting at a precise geographical point, England, home of the notion of sensus communis. England therefore represents both the northernmost point to which both men travelled and at the same time the point at which the itineraries of the two South Slavic enlighteners intersected.

Abstract

This paper analyzes the travels of Ruđer Bošković (1711-1787) and Dositej Obradović (1739/42-1811). Bošković was a scientist renowned throughout Europe, whose trips were financed by institutions, and had precise, scientific purposes. Obradović traveled at his own expense, in order to become familiar with other cultures, and he was prompted by a desire to transfer this knowledge to his people. Bošković’s and Obradović’s common urge to travel resulted in their journeys intersecting at a precise geographical point, England, home of the notion of sensus communis. England therefore represents both the northernmost point to which both men travelled and at the same time the point at which the itineraries of the two South Slavic enlighteners intersected.
