Serbian Medieval Documents in the State Archives of Venice on Monasterium

by Žarko Vujošević

King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirms to the monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Ratac the grant of six villages donated by his mother, Queen Jelena. Serbian Medieval Documents in the State Archives of Venice 1306-03-15_cca_Milutin, in: monasterium.net, URL http://monasterium.net/mom/SerbMedDocsInVenice/1306-03-15_cca_Milutin/charter, accessed at 2016-02-15+01:00.

 

From the 13th to the 15th century the Serbian Nemanjid dynasty and its successor states (the Serbian Despotate and the Balšić and Crnojević regional lordships) maintained a strong presence on the southeastern Adriatic seaboard, establishing close political and economic contacts with the leading maritime power of the period – the Republic of Venice. As a result, the vast medieval documentary heritage preserved in the State Archives of Venice also includes 25 documents issued by Serbian authors from the year 1208 to 1460, which are presented in this collection through archival and diplomatic descriptions as well as images acquired from the owning institution.
