Caucasian-origin Kevseri to be remembered in international symposium     
Istanbul - An international symposium will be held in memory of Mehmet Zahit Kevseri, who is considered to be one of the late Ottoman scholars as someone from a family that migrated to the Ottoman Empire during the Great Caucasian exile.

Joint work between Sakarya University's Theology Department and Duzce Municipality will be intended to bring both the life and the scholarly heritage of Kevseri to contemporary attention in a symposium on November 24-25 at the Effeni Thermal Hotel.

The symposium will consist of 12 sessions, with 16 lecturers from abroad and 18 from Turkey to contribute with their paper presentations to the sessions. Additional 29 negotiators will also be present during the symposium.

Kevseri, son of the Hadji Hasan Effendi, who moved from Caucasia to Duzce in 1863, was born in 1879 in the village of Camlica.

He received his primary education from his father. He completed his middle school education in Duzce. He earned his high school graduation in 1904 from several schools in Istanbul. Two years later, he began to deliver religious lecturers in the Fatih Mosque. Granted in 1913 the title of professorship, he took part in a commission that was set up to make the system of religious schools work better. While he was teaching in the then newly-systemized religious schools, he was appointed in 1914 to a newly established religious school in Kastamonu. Three years later, he resumed his post as a teacher of religious studies in Istanbul.  

In 1922, he moved to Cairo after he travelled both to Egypt and Damascus. He lived there until he died in 1952. (Agency Caucasus)
