U HUMSKOJ ZEMLJI // IN THE LAND OF HUM
Journal Title:Historijski pogledi/Historical Views
The paper deals with the position of Herzegovina in the Middle Ages. Although the significance and role of the surrounding causes and phenomena have been elaborated, which have undoubtedly influenced the situation of this area in certain periods, the main focus of the paper was placed on the position of Herzegovina within the Bosnian state, to which it belonged during the Middle Ages. However, the pronounced animosity among the Bosnian authorities and the inability of the central authorities to put the situation under control were often the main cause of the struggle against Hum. The foreign forces, especially the Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire, contributed to this, as they supported their state interests for their interests.
