A collection of six books about the Nemanjić dynasty - the foundation of the royal house, its most notable rulers and ordinary life in mediaeval Serbia - will truly be a jewel in any home library. Catering to the tastes of contemporary readership, the historical subject matter is presented in an accessible and current manner, compiling facts from established Byzantine and Serbian sources. Short summaries of ruler biographies penned by a historian make for unique and concise content that different generations can equally appreciate.
The collection "The Nemanjić Dynasty - Men of Their Time" was presented on 13th June at the premises of the Journalists' Association of Serbia in Belgrade. The books were presented by the authors, contemporary historians from the Institute for Byzantine Studies and the Institute of History - Dr Milena Repajić, Dr Predrag Komatina and Dr Ivana Komatina. Their research sheds new light on the longest-standing Serbian dynasty which has attracted interest lately due to two major anniversaries - eight centuries since the coronation of Stefan the First-Crowned (1217) and eight centuries of autocephaly of the Serbian church (1219).
