Item description for Serbian Orthodox Fundamental: The Quest for an Eternal Identity by Christos Mylonas...

This book is a comprehensive exposition of the interaction of a national the Serbian people and a religious 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 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?

Its most important contribution is to elaborate how Serbian Orthodoxy forms a sense of holiness in creating autonomous ethnic religious structures, a lineage of ethnic saints drawn from the ruling dynasty, vernacular scriptures and ceremonies, that then construct a sacred history, focusing on the Kosovo myth. John Hutchinson, London School of Economics
