Abstract: The article deals with Byzantine and Slav perceptions of Western otherness, in particular in the О Латинѣхъ сирѣчь Фроугохъ, a crude enumeration of twenty-seven complaints about Latin customs and beliefs that is found in a number of South Slavonic manuscripts of the fifteenth century. An outline will be given of the broader tradition of virulently anti-Latin opuscula in which the Slavonic list under scrutiny is to be situated, after which follows a source-critical analysis of the list’s content and structure in the light of some of its Greek precedents, especially the Opusculum contra Francos, Caerularius’ letter to Peter of Antioch, and the so-called Fist and Second anonymous.
