Summary/Abstract: which apart from liberation of Serbia implied the liberation of south Slavic peoples and the creation of a common Yugoslav state. Formulating Serbian national ideology came into focus in the period after leaving Serbia in 1915 and withdrawal through Albania via the work of intellectuals in France, England and Russia. A great number of priests from the Serbian Church left Serbia together with the army. Serbian priests were engaged in diplomatic missions in the United States of America and Great Britain. The engagement of Nikolaj Velimirović in America contributed to a fact that a great number of volunteers came to the Thessaloniki front as well as that significant funds were collected for Serbia. A considerable number of Serbian priests were educated in Great Britain. Apart from being engaged in the Thessaloniki front within the Serbian army, Serbian army chaplains participated in military missions in allied countries and neutral ones. Their work in military hospitals where Serbian soldiers were treated was particularly important. The activities of the Serbian Church priests within different diplomatic and military missions in Allied countries and on the front contributed greatly to the efforts of the Serbian Government and the Serbian army towards the achievement of war goals of the Serbian Government
