„Svetislav Božić is a great socio-cultural analyst, national thinker, inspired and precise at the same time ... Božić's turn towards Byzantium is a natural state of mind of a person according to one’s environment - people, nature, events. As a state of mind, it is conditioned by heritage and soil.”
