Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on the change in dedicatory formulas of foundation inscriptions, which were commissioned by noblemen, members of the clergy, and monks during the second half of the 14th and the 15th century, in which the names of Byzantine, Serbian, or Bulgarian emperors were substituted with the names of local, non-Byzantine rulers. It considers cases from the territories of Macedonia, Epirus, and Thessaly, and tries to discover the reasons behind this shift in dedicatory formulas.
