Summary/Abstract: The National Museum of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, holds Lyturgion (Missal) No E 543 from the beginning of the 16th c. which was probably written in the St. Joachim of Osogovo (Sarandapor) Monastery near Kriva Palanka, in today’s Republic of Macedonia. It contains the short Sarandapor Chronicle which follows the world history from the Creation to 1512. The laconic notes mention some important moments of the Ottoman expansion and the subsequent period. The identity of the persons and the events included in the chronicle offer valuable historical information. The Sarandapor Chronicle is a copy of a Serbian work, but the history described in it is not just Serbian – it is pan-Balkan. The monks who compiled the text perceived the persons and events included in it as part of a common history.
