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 question: what makes a Serb? Are meaningful assumptions possible by introducing Serbian Orthodoxy as the primal point of reference?
