Summary/Abstract: The paper outlines some of the most prominent characteristics of contemporary Byzantine studies both in Serbia, and internationally, pledging for the return of scholarship to direct work with Byzantine sources (ad fontes!), as the beginning and the basis of any serious analysis and scientific research. A critical view of the state of Byzantine studies in Serbia is offered, as well, with the stress laid on systematization of research and greater interdisciplinarity as the two necessary elements for the enhancement of the current research procedures that would contribute to the results being both innovative and more in-keeping with the current scholarly attitudes and methodology and recognized internationally as such in the future.
