Lazar Bojić (Serbian: Лазар Бојић) was the first to write essays on Serbian literary figures of the past and present of his time. His work -- "Pantheon of renowned figures of the Slavic-Serb literature" -- is now considered an oeuvre of significant importance in Serbian literary studies. In 1815, Lazar Bojić wrote and published a four-volume book of biographies of Serbian writers and poets of our literature. [1][2]

Lazar Bojić was a student of the Seminary in Sremski Karlovci, where he attended his final years of schooling in 1812 and 1813, listening to lectures on Serbian literature by Lukijan Mušicki, which he eventually incorporated into his broad survey of writers and poets of the Age of Enlightenment.[3]He was inspired by Dositej Obradović's Etika; Pavle Solarić's Pomesinak knjizeski (Literary Compendium); and correspondences between Lukijan Mušicki and Jernej Kopitar and some of Mušicki's manuscripts and notes.[4]
