OccupationMedieval writers

Anonymous Zećanin also known in Serbian Medieval Literature as Nepoznati Zećanin [1](Serbian: Непознати Зећанин; dating from 11th century) was one of the oldest Serbian medieval writers, who stands aside from the mainstream of medieval Serbian historiography and hagiography.

Literary work

He is the author of the first original Serbian biography, the "Life of St. John Vladimir" (1018 and on), which is preserved only in a Latin excerpt in the Chronicle of the Priest of Duklja (or the so-called Bar genealogy)[2]. The author of this biography probably suffered from the influence of the Slavic biographies of Cyril and Methodius, but basically the biography "belongs to the martyrological biography genre with certain specifics of Western European, Latin hagiography" (Dimitrije Bogdanović).
