Serbian Studies Vol. 27, Nos. 1-2 (2013)

This volume of Serbian Studies is dedicated to the life, experience, and contributions of the Jewish people in Serbia. Their lengthy history on the Balkan Peninsula dates to Roman times. As in the case of other ethnic groups in Antiquity, they were drawn to Serbian lands for a variety of practical considerations, including the opportunities and ease of trade via the peninsula’s network of waterways that provided access to major centers of commerce. Although initially modest in number, Jewish settlements and population increased substantially during the Middle Ages and the period of the Ottoman occupation. Read the full journal here.
