Between Ta'lîm and Irshâd: Erzurumlu Ibrahim Haqqi's Madrasa Curriculum

In this essay, after a short presentation of the life and works of Erzurumlu Ibrahim Haqqi (d. 1194/1780), the text of his work, Tartîb al-?ulûm, is given and the name of books and their authors mentioned in the Tartîb are introduced. In his book, which consists of 125 couplets, Ibrahim Haqqi mentions the name of sciences and their texts in thirty one chapter, believing that these are necessary for everybody who wants to be a scholar. It is possible to say that, compared to other texts in the same field, Tartîb al-?ulûm is in line with the main characteristics of the general trend of the Ottoman scholarly public. In addition, despite the opposing ideas including those of Katip Celebi, this work maintains the general level of the Ottoman madrasa system. The irshâdî character of the Tartîb, in addition to its scholarly aspects, shows both the fact that Ibrahim Haqqi was a murshid as well as being a mudarris, and that eastern madrasas had closer relationships with tekkes compared to those in Istanbul. On the other hand, such new aspects as ilm al-tashrîh in the Tartîb reflect the intellectual context of the Lale Devri as well as the author's own inclinations. Şükran FAZLIOĞLU
