Ruvarac attended gymnasiums in Sremski Karlovci Hun. During his Law studies in Vienna —56 , he became interested in history.
After studying theology, he entered the monastic order and took the name Ilarion. Ruvarac was the first to challenge the Romantic tradition in Serbian historiography. He dedicated much of his life to the excavation and critical edition of sources, mostly on medieval Serbian history, upholding the scientific status of historical as opposed to literary for example, poetic or folkloric sources.
