This paper will present and discuss the innovative features of decorative practices in Post-Byzantine art (15th-17th centuries) due to contact with Ottoman visual culture. As a part of the heterogeneous Ottoman Empire, the South Slavonic world was in direct contact with the material culture coming from the regions of Asia Minor and the Middle East. The process of “orientalization” is remarked from the 15th century in the decorative practices of manuscript production, liturgical vessels, liturgical textiles, and icon and mural ornaments. The presence of these Ottoman motifs in the decoration of Slavonic manuscripts has been associated mainly with the Ioan Kratovski manuscript heritage.
