Now that /ex-yu/ has been destroyed by Croats and Serbs, we have our own thread.
I'm fascinated with medieval Bosnian history and the bogomim heresy.
It is said that many dualist elements are still present in folklore tales. Do you happen to know any, or know where I can find some?

Thank you so much for this. I hope I can visit Bosnia someday to study the subject and photograph the stecii. I am currently learning the basics of the language and have read all the main academic works like The Medieval Manichee by Steven Runciman (Cambridge press).
The bogomil period lasted as long as the Ottoman period, there must be a lot left. I've found evidence of a migration wave of French cathars and Italian patarenes to Bosnia in the 14th century, when the Roman church found the Inquisition against them. Also, I think the reason why sufism is predominant in Bosnia has a direct link to bogomilism.
How popular is the subject with the general population in Bosnia? Are people fascinated with this part of their heritage?
No, that was the resident ex-yu attention whore and lunatic. He was institutionalized in a nuthouse and all.
He doesn't post anymore, and it really tells how ex-yu has gone to shit when I genuinely think things were better when he was around spamming vocaroes with his inane ramblings.

Fuck, but get in contact with them.
its all religious divisions. being a bosnian serb merely means youre a bosnian of orthodox religion (even though most of them would be offended by such statement).
i have no problem with them, i have a problem with them splitting the country just to have their own "serbian" entity
We used to live together for centuries... And we even had a Serb and Croat generals in the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, during the last war.
Bosnia is like a small Yugoslavia. And we know how it ended up. So it's ironic that Bosnians demanded to separate from it while making a smaller version of the same thing.
