The intellectual history of the Macedonian question was tightly intertwined with political issues. Serbian relations with the Slavs from Macedonia date since the Serbian Revolution (1804–1815) and working on the liberation from the Ottoman rule. At the very end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century, the main feature of Serbian policy towards Macedonia was to claim Serbia’s rights to the territories between Belgrade and Thessaloniki. The evidence was performed in historicism, geography, ethnography, linguistics, philology and economy. The main ideological justification of Serbian request was based on the historical right, because it was a territory which comprised the medieval Serbian state, with monasteries and endowments. The Macedonian question came into the very focus of Serbian daily politics and culminated during the Balkan Wars 1912–1913
