Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Bogatic

The old church in Bogatić was first described in detail by Joakim Vujić in 1826: “In this village there is a large new church made of wood.” The founder of this church is His Royal Highness Mr. Miloš, with his brother Mr. Ephraim.

The temple of the church is Thomas Sunday, the eighth day after Pascha.” In the middle of the 19th century, a large, one-nave church with a chancel, choir and bell tower was built. When entering the church, there is a plaque on the wall from the outside on the right, saying that the church was built in 1854-1856. The following municipalities participated in the construction: Bogatićka, Dubljanska, Belotićka and Metkovićka. It is dedicated to the Holy Mother of God and is a true gem of our cultural past. Although the church was completed in 1856, several years passed until the church municipality decided to renovate the interior. On June 15, 1863, under the number 923, the Consistory of the Eparchy of Sabačka reported to the Ministry of Education and Church Affairs: “… that the municipality of Bogatića wants to raze its church, and to use its church capital, which has been kept for this purpose with the approval of the Ministry, and it was not handed over to the management of the funds, so, since that capital will not be sufficient for the intended purpose, the Consistory is asking for your intervention with the relevant ministry so that the missing change can be settled with taxes…
