Poturs Bosnia - - - - 1560 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 59. "...one other mysterious element in Bosnian religious history, which, according to some writers, indicates a link between Islam and the medieval Bosnian Church: the Poturs. The original meaning of this name is obscure. It was generally used to refer to Islamicized or Turkicized Bosnian Slavs of a rather rustic and provincial kind, who may have retained some Christian practices. (Discussion of the Poturs has been dominated by one late source, a description by the English diplomat Paul Rycaut, which appears to give them the attributes of members of a religions sect; but this... is misleading). "
Poturs Bosnia - - - - 1566 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 60. "Another Turkish source, the record of a court case in Sarajevo in 1566, distinguishes poturs, who are clearly local Bosnian inhabitants, from other Muslims, who may be Ottomans. And a Turkish-Bosnian (i.e. Turkish-Serbo-Croat) dictionary of 1631 translates 'potur' simply as 'villager'.... it seems likely that this was originally just a contemptuous term used for those Bosnian Slavs who, despite having converted to Islam, remained evidently primitive and provincial when seen through Ottoman eyes.
