Summary/Abstract: Papal letters sent to various recipients around the world are stored in the thousands of volumes of the three most important and oldest series of registers (the Vatican, Avignon and Lateran registers) that are kept in the Secret Vatican archives and were produced during centuries in the Apostolic Office. The researchers of Bosnian medieval history will there find numerous letters that attest to affluent reciprocal relations at all levels. Since it is almost impossible to describe them completely, the author drew on no more than a few particularly significant documents which she then, according to their content, grouped in several basic sets: appointing some of the more important papal legates to work in the territory of medieval Bosnia; bishop appointments, documents that trace Dominican and Franciscan activities, records of granted indulgences and dispensations and royal recommendations for receiving church prebends or achieving a successful ecclesiastical career. The documents on legate and bishop appointments and Franciscan and Dominican activities are more recurrent in both regional and foreign specialized literature, and those concerning indulgences, dispensations and recommendations have still not been published.
