This short guide to the most glorious period of the Serbian medieval state – the rule of the Nemanjić dynasty (1168–1371), contains an outline of historical and cultural circumstances in the medieval  Serbia. The Nemanjić rulers made Serbia an independent kingdom and empire, established the autocephalous Serbian church, wrote the first literary works, were the first legislators and generous endowers of the most splendid monasteries of medieval Europe.


The efforts that the Nemanjić rules built into the Serbian state and church led to the creation of authentic Serbian Orthodox tradition that helped the Serbs preserve their culture and spirituality during the three and a half centuries of Ottoman domination. The cult of the Nemanjić kings and emperors, the majority of whom were canonised, has become an intrinsic element of Serbian Orthodox identity.


The book contains an overview and pictures of all medieval monasteries inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, as well as a selection of the most beautiful frescoes of Serbian monasteries that provide an invaluable insight into the character of Serbian medieval society.
