Third edition of volume II (of 4, covering the 11th to 14th century) of the very rare first modern history of the Southern Slavs,first published in Vienna in 1794-5, then in St. Petersburg (1795). This work is a synthesis of all earlier Serbian historiographic literature and remained an important source for these interlinked national histories up to the end of the 19th century. The Serbo-Bulgarian writer, historian, traveller, and pedagogue Jovan Rajic (1726-1801) is considered one of the greatest Serbian academics of the 18th century. Born in the Vojvodina he walked to Kiev to study theology. After travelling over vast parts of Central and Eastern Europe he was rejected as teacher in his native country on theological grounds and travelled to Mount Athos via Constantinople were he researched in libraries and archives. He settled in Temesvar (now Romania) as a teacher of geography and rhetoric, where he began to write this historical opus magnum. He later became Archimandrite in the Serbian monastery of Kovilj, where he spent the rest of his life writing books on religion and theology. He wrote in Serbian, Russian, Latin, German, Hungarian and Old Slavonic and can be regarded as the Serbian pioneer of rationalism. - We were unable to find any evidence of this work, nor any part of it, having ever been in the trade; institutionally it is equally rare.
