This work is a survey of the historical records about the areas situated at the foot of the Papuk and Krndija mountains in the Middle Ages. This continuos mountain range – which is called Sljeme / Szelemen, Mons Poseganus an Pozsegahavasa in medieval sources – separated the county of Požega, to its south, from the neighbouring counties of Križevci (Kõrös) and Baranja on its northern side; and also, in a similar way, the bishopric of Pécs from the bishopric of Zagreb. To a certain degree, the mountain retained its role of administrative delimitation during the period of the Ottoman rule (in the 16th and 17th centuries) as well, when it divided the kaza (judicial district) of Požega from that of Orahovica, both within the boundaries of the sanjak of Požega. After some introductory considerations, in this first part of the survey a compilation of data from primary sources is presented for the area on the northern side of the mountain. Here, the most important settlements, comprising castles and centers of large estates, were Voćin (Atyina), Drenovac (Darnóc) and Orahovica (Raholca). The series of data concerning the church history of these places are provided separately; the parish church of Szent-Kozma-Damján (now hamlet of Kuzma) and the Serb Orthodox monastery near Orahovica (on the territory of the medieval village of Remeta) are also included here. Early modern sources have also been examined and recounted in the survey in so far as they reveal some details about medieval buildings (castles, churches) and their subsequent fate.
