Anonymous Ravaničanin also known in Serbian as Непознати Раваничанин (Nepoznati Ravaničanin)[1], who wrote "The Life of Saint Lazar" (1393–1398?), one of the earliest biographies of Lazar Hrebeljanović, and the oldest complete Serbian writings about the time of the Battle of Kosovo.

Life and work

As a prince's contemporary and inhabitant of the Ravanica Monastery, the writer gives an abundance of historical data (prince's life and reign, his sermon before the battles, Murat's deaths during the battles, siege and capture of the prince and other Serbian rulers, their execution in the Metropolitan Church in Pristina, the transfer of Lazar's relics to Ravanica three years later, a description of Ravanica, etc.), "which did not stifle any literary and artistic value of the writings" (Đorđe Trifunović).[2][3]
