Abstract (in English)

The insertion of new, modern elements into the structure of a cultural monument is not an unusual procedure in the protection and restoration of old buildings. Such solutions have been used with more or less success in living urban entities, archaeological building remains and individual buildings. The most delicate problem and the most difficult to solve is interpolation in medieval sacral monuments. An example of this is the Sopocani monastery church in Serbia.
