Vlora and Berat in 1900

The Austrian historian and archaeologist, Carl Ludwig Patsch (1865-1945) was born in Kovač (Kowatsch) in Bohemia and grew up from 1874 in Volhynia. From 1885, he studied history, geography and classical philology at the University of Prague, where he finished his doctorate on Strabo in 1889. He taught in Vienna and, from 1893 in Sarajevo, where in 1898 he was made custodian of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Museum (Zemajlski Muzej). In 1904, Patsch founded the Institute for Balkan Research (Institut für Balkanforschung) in Sarajevo, which he ran until the end of the First World War in 1918 when it was closed down and he was forced to move back to Vienna. It was Carl Patsch who in 1922 founded the national museum in Tirana, at the request of the Albanian government. Patsch is remembered for his articles on Illyrian and Thracian antiquity and, in a closer connection with Albania, for the monograph Der Sandschak Berat in Albanien (The Sandjak of Berat in Albania), Vienna 1904. This book is the result of his expedition to central Albania in the spring of 1900. It contains many photos, not all of good quality, and numerous sketches of the antiquities he came across: Greco- Roman busts, gravestones, inscriptions, coins and rock cliff art, all of which have most certainly disappeared now.

Vlora und Berat im Jahre 1900

Der im böhmischen Kowatsch/Kovač geborene und in Wolhynien aufgewachsene österreichische Geschichtswissenschaftler und Archäologe, Carl Ludwig Patsch (1865-1945), studierte Geschichte, Geographie und Altphilologie an der Karlsuniversität Prag, wo er im Jahre 1889 mit einer Doktorarbeit über Strabo promovierte. Er unterrichtete in Wien und ab 1893 in Sarajevo, wo er 1898 zum Kustos des Bosnisch-Herzegowinischen Landesmuseums (Zemajlski Muzej) berufen wurde. Im Jahre 1904 gründete Patsch das Bosnisch-Herzegowinische Institut für Balkanforschung, das er bis zum Ende des Ersten Weltkrieges leitete. Dann kehrte er nach Wien zurück. Im Jahre 1922 richtete Patsch auf Bitte der albanischen Regierung das Nationalmuseum in Tirana ein. In Erinnerung geblieben ist er wegen seiner Aufsätze zum illyrischen und thrakischen Altertum, sowie – in engerem Zusammenhang mit Albanien – wegen seiner Monographie Der Sandschak Berat in Albanien, Wien 1904. Dieses Buch war das Ergebnis seiner Forschungsreise nach Mittelalbanien im Frühjahre 1900. Es enthält viele Fotos – nicht alle von bester Qualität – sowie zahlreiche Skizzen der Antiquitäten, die er dort entdeckte: griechische und römische Büste, Grabsteine, Inschriften, Münzen, Felsenkunst – Werke, die alle in der Zwischenzeit sicherlich verloren gegangen sind.

Vlora dhe Berati në vitin 1900

Historiani dhe arkeologu, Karl Ludvig Paç (Carl Ludwig Patsch, 1865-1945), lindi në Kovaç të Bohemisë dhe u rrit në Volhini (Ukrainë). Studioi historinë, gjeografinë dhe filologjinë klasike në Universitetin e Pragës, ku mbaroi doktoraturën mbi Strabo-n në vitin 1893. Dha mësim në Vjenë dhe, nga viti 1893, në Sarajevë, ku u emërua drejtor i muzeut rajonal të Bosnjë Hercegovinës. Në vitin 1904 themeloi në Sarajevë Institutin e Balkanologjisë, të cilin e drejtoi deri në fund të Luftës së Parë Botërore, kur muzeu u mbyll dhe ai u detyrua të kthehej në Vjenë. Ishte pikërisht Karl Paç i cili, me kërkesë të qeverisë shqiptare, themeloi në vitin 1922 muzeun kombëtar në Tiranë. Paçi njihet për artikuj të tij për lashtësinë ilire dhe trake si dhe, në lidhje më të drejtpërdrejtë me Shqipërinë, për librin Der Sandschak Berat in Albanien (Sanxhaku i Beratit në Shqipëri), Vjenë 1904. Ky libër ishte rezultati i udhëtimit të tij në zonën e Vlorës dhe të Beratit në pranverë te vitit 1900. Përmban shumë fotografi – jo të gjitha me cilësi të lartë – si dhe shumë skica të objekteve të lashta që i zbuloi në Shqipëri: buste greke dhe romake, varre antike, mbishkrime, monedha, objekte të artit të gdhendjes në shkëmb – nga të cilët ndërkohë nuk ka mbetur asgjë.
