Abstract

This paper analyzes Filip Višnjić’s contribution to the First Serbian Uprising through his poetic and propaganda work. Apart from this, Filip Višnjić is to be credited for contributions to our historiography and ethnography, since he, although blind, factually and accurately recorded, in his poems, important details of war events, names of numerous participants who would otherwise be forgotten, even the attire of warriors from both sides. He was not only propagator of revolutionary ideas, but also their creator. As recorded by Vuk Karadžić, most of Višnjić’s important songs about events of the First Serbian Uprising or related to it, were composed by Višnjić himself. Even more importantly, points and messages of these songs, which later lived among the people as ideas and truths, were also his creation. Today, 250 years after his birth, we can, after the insight in his life and work, conclude that he was an important factor of inciting and success of the most important Serbian revolution, even though neither he at the moment nor others in later times were sufficiently aware of that.
