Serbian poet, author, and religious figure whose life spanned the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. His collected works were published posthumously in 1838.
He took courses in law and philosophy at the University of Pest.
He was a monk and abbot, and his religious poetry was greatly respected by the Serbian Orthodox Church. The same organization, however, denounced his secular poems.
His parents were highly invested in his education and sent him to grammar and high schools in Temerin, Titel, Novi Sad, and Segedin.
He was influenced by his study of political figures such as Edmund Burke.
