Up to close of the Middle Ages Croatian areas, in consistence with different political, geographical and foreign influences manifested specific particularities and developmental unhomogeneousnesses. In spite of all that, they represented socio-cultural compatible unity, which was steadily deep-rooted in its own civilization and mainly managed to go along with developmental streams within it. With Ottoman conquests which begin in the midst of 15 century, important changes had happened in this regard. Civilization continuity was preserved only on defended territories, that is in north-west Croatia, insularcoastal belt under Venetian authotity and in Dubrovnik Republic. On the conquered territories Ottomans completely erased western social structure. For Croats in those areas the only connection to own civilization was Catholic Church, essentially restricted on the Franciscan order. In this paper we analyze the changes which in socio-cultural context took place within the framework of present-day Dalmatia during the Ottoman control of significantly part of its territory. We also analyze the reasons why these changes, which had happened during the Ottomans, succeeded to preserve its importance even after the liberation of these territories during the Venetian, French and Austrian authorities.
