The Serbian Monasteries

Church complex

The church complex at the Patriarchate of Peć; its founders are probably Saint Sava, who died in 1235; the land here became a ''metoh'' (land owned and governed by a monastery) of Žiča monastery, then the seat of the Serbian archbishopric. Archbishop Arsenije I (who died in 1266) then built the Church of the Holy Apostles here and two more churches were built in subsequent years. The Archbishopric at Peć was raised to Patriarchal status by Emperor Dušan the Mighty, who ruled from 1331 to 1355).
