Stećci on the hill Visočac

05 May 2023  |  Srpskainfo
The mystery of the stećci, medieval tombstones in Bosnia and Herzegovina, remains unsolved among archaeologists, symbologists, linguists, and ethnologists. While commonly interpreted as ordinary tombstones dating from the 12th to 14th centuries, some researchers, like Russian archaeologist Dimitrije Sergejevski, have studied them extensively, categorizing them as standing or lying and suggesting Cyrillic inscriptions indicate a Serbian origin. Others believe they are written in Bosančica, a script used by Bogomil inhabitants. Controversial theories by researchers such as Samir Osmanagić and Dejan Lučić suggest the stećci could be much older, possibly 3,000 years, and linked to knowledge from extraterrestrials. The stećci feature carved motifs and Cyrillic inscriptions, which scribes may have intended as important messages for descendants. Poet Mak Dizdar is noted for his interpretations of their meaning.
