Serbian literature

Serbian literature, the literature of the Serbs, a Balkan people speaking the Serbian language (still referred to by linguists as Serbo-Croatian).

Serbian literature developed primarily from the 12th century, producing such religious works as the illuminated Miroslav Gospel, biblical stories, and hagiographies. During the Middle Ages, the strong Serbian state that encompassed most of the Balkans fostered literary and translation production by highly educated priests in numerous monasteries.
