The paper presents and analyses the evidence found in Serbian medieval royal charters about members of the clergy as participants of diplomatic production. The topic is examined in light of the key role of priests and high prelates in the chancery practice of European rulers, which has been confirmed in western European diplomatic studies. Due to the relatively scarce research potential of domestic documentary sources and other comparable material, the examples in Serbian charters are interpreted on the basis of explanatory models of the document making practice of medieval rulers, presented by contemporary European diplomatics
