Summary/Abstract: The canonical work by Matija Divković Sto čudesa aliti znamen’ja blaženei slavne Bogorodice, Divice Marije has already been partially investigated within the frame of the traditional linguistic stylistics. The discourse and pragmatic stylistic interpretation can contribute to exploration and better understanding of certain new aspects of the work and its style. The paper is focused on the issue of discourse type of Sto čudesa, i.e. the issue of itsgenre. At the same time, various aspects of the construction of narrative and narrative voices are explored. Apart from that, the role of performatives in the text has been explored, as well as illocutionary force of the text in general. All these elements are regarded as relevant for the contemporary stylistic interpretation of Divković’s text.
