Monastery MANASIJA Srpski
Builder: Despot Stefan Lazaravic
Built: XV century

Monastery Manasija is endowment of Despot Stefan Lazaravić, erected and painted in the beginning of XV century. Monastery was one the most important cultural centers because famous Resava school was active there during XV and XVI century, with monks who fostered literary and copying work.

Monastery Manasija is endowment of Despot Stefan Lazaravić, erected and painted between 1407, and 1418. Monastery complex is surrounded with massive walls with eleven defensive towers. Despot Stefan is burried here, in main monastery church dedicated to Holy Trinity. Monastery was very important cultural center during XV and XVI century when Resava school for literary works and copying was active.

Main monastery church was built in morava style, inscribed cross in combination with trefoil and it has five domes. Exterior is not typical for morava school because it was build with stone, and facades are decorated only with pilasters, collonettes and roof cornice.

Fresco-painting is half destroyed because monastery was severely damaged many times but we can still see the style which predominate the clearness of the composition, noble figures, rich vestures and detailes and usage of gold and azure color. Introduction of everyday life motives troughout painted costumes, furniture and utensiles creates a more intimate relation with a believers and proves that atrist of Mileševa were one of the best artist of their time.
