Pavle Nenadović (Serbian Cyrillic: Павле Ненадовић, pronounced [pâːʋle nenǎːdoʋit͡ɕ]; 1703–1768) was the Serbian Orthodox Metropolitan of Karlovci from 1749 to 1768. He was born on 14 January 1703 in Budim, Hungary. At the age of eighteen, he was employed as a clerk in the Budim Magistrates Office. He became a Serbian Orthodox cleric in 1726, after which he took monastic vows in the Rakovac Monastery. In 1737, Serbian Patriarch Arsenije IV appointed Pavle as his general exarch, and in 1742 the patriarch appointed him as the bishop of the Eparchy of upper Karlovac. Pavle was ordained metropolitan of Karlovci in 1749. He worked on the promotion of culture and education of the Serbs in the Habsburg Monarchy. A result of his work was a significant increase of interest in science and literature among the Serbs. Metropolitan Pavle fought against the conversion of Serbs in Croatia and Romanians in Transilvania into Uniates. He died on 15 August 1768.[1][2]
