Although anonymous publications are normally catalogued according to the rules laid down in librarians’ manuals as well as established practice, occasionally a work we come across requires a different approach. Such an example is the Pobožne molitve (Book of Devotional Prayer), written by a woman in the Croatian kajkavian dialect and published anonymously in Vienna in 1678. Reflecting the predicament of a person situated between death and God, this work raises numerous questions regarding its purpose and authorship. The absence of any clues as to the work’s provenance necessitates a close analysis of other kajkavian prayer books and similar works; from the historical background to the activities of the pious fraternities; the surviving fragments of the devotional life of women’s orders in the seventeenth-century Zagreb; and the written archive of Judita Petronila Zrinski, a member of the female order of St Clare of Assisi, also known as the Poor Clares.
