Synopsis: This book is a comprehensive exposition of the interaction of a national (the Serbian people) and a religiou (the Orthodox Christian faith) content, in the formation of a distinctive national identity and a mode of being. Its interdisciplinary approach, drawing on sociology, social anthropology, theology, political theory, Balkan historiography, and Serbian folklore, is deployed to provide a powerful and original analysis of how Serbian Orthodoxy has resulted in the sacralisation of the Serbian nation by framing the parameters of its existence. Addresses the following questions: what 'makes' a Serb? Are meaningful assumptions possible by introducing Serbian Orthodoxy as the primal point of reference? Why does religion appear to have an especially strong appeal?

From the Author: I am (similarly) intrigued by the cognitive and referential properties of historical genealogies, which in spite of assumptions about the progress of society toward a universal, modern form, remain a prevalent source of authority and allegiance. It is precisely the role of the past as a social constant and a lineage of thought in the life of the Serbian individual and his community - the context of the national imaginary - that this analysis addresses. The subject of spatial, temporal and notional continuity is not confined into a single, cataclysmic event, although the Serbian mind is permeated by the moral persuasions of the Kosovo parable, but rather pertains to a holistic signifier, a manifest and observable referent of a society persisting over time. Religion, as a ¡§primordial¡¨ given factor of culture unites the psychic and physical hypostases of the human being and irons out the inconsistencies and incoherences of its transient existence. For this reason, Orthodoxy - the professed faith of Serbianhood - provides an invaluable exegetic and evaluative perspective in the decipherment of an intricate modus vivendi, and is the thematical core of the present study. Stated in a more concise fashion, it is the main hypothesis of my work that Orthodoxy is the sacralisation of the Serbian national identity.
