Our new collection of the Monastery of Naupara is available on our website. In the village of Naupara, not far from the town of Kruševac, there is a monastery of the same name with its church dedicated to the feast of Nativity of the Mother of God. It was built as a palatial church, as we learn from the charter issued by Prince Lazar and Patriarch Spyridon in 1382.


BLAGO Expedition, May 2024

‍In May of 2024, the collections of three important monasteries in Serbia were acquired.

‍ This year, BLAGO Fund is sponsoring a session at the Leeds Medieval Congress, one of the largest gathering of medievalists from around the world. Our session devoted to digitization will feature presentations from scholars from Serbia, US, and Greece working in the field. You can find the entire program of the Congress here.


This richly illustrated book presents depictions of the Mother of God in Serbian medieval wall paintings. A unique, high-quality edition, with exquisite photographs accompanied by the texts written by Bishop Maksim Vasiljević and Ivana Lemcool, art historian Ph.D.
