Exhibition in the Old University Library: Sayyid ʿUthman of Batavia

Sayyid ʿUthman (1822–1914) was a Muslim scholar of Arab descent in the Netherlands East Indies. As an adviser and informant on local Islam he was in close touch with the Dutch Islam scholar Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje. From 1 December 2014 until 23 January 2015, the ‘Oude UB’ (Old University Library) highlights aspects of his life and work with a selection of objects from the special collections of the Leiden University Libraries.
