As female cults in Serbian culture have continued to play an important role in shaping religious and personal attitudes, in creating spirituality and national identity, the presentation of nine saints in the book, with a discussion of their lives and legends, primarily on the basis of a corpus of hagiological texts (vitae, offices, akathistas), provides an extremely interesting panorama of the spiritual life of Serbia over the centuries in close connection with the history of the country and the nation. These cults, as Dominika Gapska describes them, may serve as signs which help to recognise and understand the uniqueness of Serbian culture through the perspective of faith and attachment to tradition, which are its cornerstones.
