Summary/Abstract: Historical sources on the presence of Bosnian krstjani in medieval Bosnia and Hum, their society, political life, culture and diplomacy are unambiguous and corroborate much more than is usually stated in the dry chronicler notes. The treatment of Bosnian krstjani and their position in the structure of the medieval Bosnia and Hum cannot be interpreted as a clasical interrelation between the state and state religion. The reasons for this are numerous, especially since the problem of state religion in medieval Bosnia is oversimplified, and many scholars are reluctant to conclude what the position of krstjani of Bosnia and Hum actually was in the social and political life of medieval Bosnia and Hum. All the recorded historical sources that address medieval Bosnia and Hum indicate that Bosnian krstjani had an important, even crucial position in the political, social and state life of the medieval Bosnia and Hum in the long period from the end of the 12th century until the political downfall of medieval Bosnia and Hum. They represented the distinguished part of the society and held a position of authority unlike any other in the medieval community of Bosnia and Hum. All this postulates a societal and political position of Bosnian krstjani on a different, more prestigious platform, which significantly influenced practically all segments of medieval society of Bosnia and Hum.
