Abstract:

Nicolaas van Wijk (1880-1941) was the founder of Slavic studies in the
Netherlands and one of the greatest Slavists in general. This book
describes for the first time how a scholar of the Dutch language, whose
etymological dictionary of the Dutch language is still considered the best
of its kind, was appointed in 1913 to the newly created Chair in Slavic
languages at Leiden University and built up a tremendous reputation for
himself in Eastern Europe. Van Wijk's relations with his famous teacher,
the linguist C.C. Uhlenbeck, are followed attentively, as is his
postgraduate apprenticeship in Leipzig (1902-1903), where he followed
August Leskien's lectures in Slavic studies. Attention is also paid to the
various aspects of Van Wijk's enormous oeuvre covering the whole field of
Slavic studies and of phonology, of which he was one of the pioneers. Van
Wijk did not, however, follow the lines approved for the social conduct of
a Leiden professor and was at one time suspected by the police of communist
activities. His commitment to materially helping all he could from an
Eastern Europe torn apart by the First World War and its aftermath was
exceptional. His fascination with all things Russian is a background theme
that played throughout his life and even at his death: son of a Dutch
Reformed minister, the bachelor Van Wijk was buried in a grave surmounted
by a Russian Orthodox cross beside his Russian foster son, who died young.  
This book is of interest to Slavists, linguists and cultural historians.
