The importance of the Herderian view of nationhood prevalent in the nineteenth century, which identified it with language, can hardly be exaggerated. It inclined intellectuals, who naturally saw mother-tongue literacy as the key to their ‘enlightening’ goals, towards acceptance of a common south Slav identity, any notion of religiously defined ethnicities being felt to savour of the past. Yet since the term ‘Illyrian’ to denote this encompassing nationality did not catch on, a tendency developed for different south Slav peoples to express the 24 Taming Balkan Nationalism common cultural identity through their own name.

The initiative in its rivalry with Tsarist Russia passed to the latter. Yet there was a dualism in Russian policy. The ties of language and Orthodox religion which Russia shared with the majority of Balkan people could not be a matter of indifference to Russian diplomacy, but mindful of Tsarist autocratic traditions and distrustful of Slav nationalists’ loyalty, the long-serving foreign minister Gorchakov (1856–78) was more concerned to maintain Russian influence in places like Belgrade than to set an activist agenda.
