ABOUT THE TERM STECAK

Summary

By introducing the term stecak for all medieval monuments in the territory of
Bosna and Herzegovina a problem ensued concerning the monuments in the neighbor-
ing territories that is in their dividing in the group of stecak and all the other groups.
Because the shape of the monument has been decisive when denoting to which 'type'
they belong to, the monuments in Serbia have been divided in stecak (slemenjak)
type and types of horizontal or vertical monuments. As the plaques as well as some
types of vertical monuments occur in Serbia in the time when stecak of that shape
is almost unknown in Bosna and Herzegovina it is impossible to accept that, for
example, plaque should be considered to be stecak only because it is located in the
same necropolis with other typical (slemenjak, sanduk) types of stecak or because it
has the same motifs as these other shapes. In addition we generally do not know
what it looks like and what is the contents of the grave under the stecak. Accepting
specific term stecak for the Bosna and Herzegovina monuments (that primarily had
political background) created the theory about stecak as the TYPE of monument
isolated from other contemporary and similar shapes outside the mentioned area.
This similarity is the consequence of certain time and differences among the
monuments are the result of differences among the regions that have distinct spiritual,
cultural and historical heritage as well as distinct sculptural tradition and different
stone material available. Also there was the difference in taste, capability and inspira-
tion of people living in various regions. Consequently, we must choose such treatment
that will lead to incorporation of all monuments identified as stecak in the general
problem of studying of medieval tombstones. That will be possible by placing them
into certain chronological and territorial frame within specific typological shape and
consequently within one common typological systematization of shapes.
