The so-called Fojnica Armorial (Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian Fojni?ki grbovnik/ , also known as Ilirski grbovnik "Illyrian armorial") is an ?arly modern Catholic roll of arms, including heraldry of South Slavic history, that is related to the early ideas of romantic nationalism and illyrism. The manuscript is named after the Franciscan monastery in Fojnica where it was kept.
The manuscript is an important source of the classical heraldry of the Balkan Peninsula, alongside the Koreni?-Neori? Armorial of 1595, and the "Illyrian Armorial" (Society of Antiquaries of London MS.54) collected by Edward Bourchier, 4th Earl of Bath before 1637.
The manuscript contains a total of 139 coats of arms. It begins with a depiction of the Bogorodica, saints Cosmas and Damian, and Saint Jerome. There follows a title page, written in Cyrillic, which attributes the work to one Stanislav Rub?i?, in honour of King Stefan Du?an, with the date 1340. The date of 1340 is result of pseudepigraphy. There is an added note in Latin, dated 1800, which testifies that the manuscript had been kept in Fojnica monastery "from time immemorial". Then there is as page showing a combined coat of arms consisting of eleven parts. After this, there are ten coats of arms of late medieval realms of the region, Macedonia (Macedoniae), "Illyria" (Vllvriae), Bosnia (Bosnae), Dalmatia (Dalmatie), Croatia (Crovatiae), Slavonia (Slavoniae), Bulgaria (Bvlgariae), Serbia (Svrbiae), Rascia (Rasciae) and "Primordia" (Primordiae), followed by coats of arms of noble families.
