Sažetak

The exhausting Ottoman wars waged in the vicinity of the Dubrovnik Republic were marked by disorder and anarchy. The bordering villages of the Republic’s counties (Konavle, Župa, and Primorje) became the victims of a mob law that spread from Herzegovina like a disease. The Republic’s frontiersmen thus polarized into brigands and non-brigands, their mutual hatred being particularly strong. Life in this area was characterized by constant ravages, plunder, famine, and plague. The population was unable to use the pastures and fields in Herzegovina. Small-scale trade across the border was hampered, contributing further to the unbearable conditions in the area.
