Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to determine an approach for defi ning theses for the history of the Bosnian medieval historiography. In order to do this, at fi rst, it is necessary to defi ne the very concept of the Bosnian medieval period and its periodization. Furthermore, it is necessary to determine its basic characteristics, its relationship towards the overall history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as its relationship to the present times. Besides analyzing the results achieved so far, there have been given suggestions for a new approach in this fi eld. It has been suggested that, in addition to dealing with the new topics, it is also important to revise some already established viewpoints, as well as to make those that remained open until today clearer (there are still different viewpoints on the same issue). It is also necessary to solve some conceptual and methodological dilemmas that have sprung up from the approach to the Bosnian Middle Ages we have had until present.
