AbstractAt the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries, in the wake of the state reforms and the secularization of the school system, Serbian people in the Habsburg Monarchy gained a substantial foundation for the development of their own school system, not only regarding pri- mary, but also secondary schools. A number of important schools were established – the Gymna- sium of Karlovci, the Orthodox Seminary, the Teacher Training College and the Gymnasium in Novi Sad. The latter was established in the years 1811 to 1816 as the result of a joint effort of the citizens of Novi Sad and the Bishop of Bačka Gedeon Petrović and Metropolitan Stefan Stratimirović. It soon became the most important Serbian High School and it was highly regarded by its contemporaries for its excellent teaching in particular. Due to this, it outdid the Gymnasium of Karlovci even before 1848. It was the school’s exceptional teaching staff that first and foremost contributed to its reputation and among the staff there was also one Pavle Jozef Šafarik.
