Summary/Abstract: Two dominant determinants of the scientific and research work of prof. dr. Boris Nilević can be recognised in his profile, as a scientist and historian of medieval Bosnian history, and as a University lecturer. He wrote dozens of studies, discussions, articles, observations and reviews with a true scientific passion, but also with a great love towards the events, mysteries and beauties of medieval history. He wrote very bravely, with a language which stood out from the ever present cliché of terms. Boris Nilević was among the rare historians who, in his works, managed to bridge the history, culture and civilization of the medieval and Ottoman Bosnia. Apart from that, he managed to connect history with other related disciplines, such as literature, philosophy, theology, history of art etc. The scientific contribution of Boris Nilević to the historiography of Bosnia and Herzegovina is significant, but it is also instructive for future research about the many subjects that he formed a basis for in his works.
