On the basis of the archival sources from the State archives in Venice (fonds of Council of ten and Venetian inquisiton) author has tried to reconstruct some aspect of the social and religious life in Ulcinj during the 40’s of the sixteenth century. The main protagonists of this study are archbishop of Bar Lodovico Chieregati (1528-1551) and his chief vicar nobleman of Bar and bishop of Ulcinj Jakov Dalmas. The latter bishop, according to the report of count and captain Baldassero Conduiero, was a principle culprit for the social and religious problems in the bishopric of Ulcinj. Namely, this count attempted to introduce some new noble families to the nobility of the city of Ulcinj, and the bishop opposed this idea. Archbishop Chieregati reacted because of this scrap, and he supported his envoy Dalmasi. Moreover, he accused some members of the Ulcinj’s nobility regarding their religious practice – namely because of the Protestantism. On the basis of his accusation author tried to reconstruct circumstances in Ulcinj and in archbishopric of Bar. Moreover, author has attempted to clear the role of the each protagonist of these events.
