First of all in the paper are shown the dioceses to which the region of today’s Gospić-Senj diocese belonged to in history.
This is principally the Senj diocese for which data exists saying that it existed back at the beginning of the 5th century. It certainly disappeared at the time of the great migrations of people and reappeared in the mid-12th century. At the beginning of the 17th century it was united with the Modruš diocese (or the Krbava diocese). The Krbava diocese was founded in 1185. The headquarters were transferred in 1460 to Modruš and so it would then be called the Modruš diocese. From the beginning of the 18th century it was called the Modruš or Krbava diocese. In 1460, in the region of the Senj diocese, the Otočac diocese was formed that would last about only 80 years. After the liberation of Lika and Krbava from the Turks the whole of Lika was annexed by the Senj diocese, before the Turks under the Nin diocese, and part of Pozrmanje (Zrmanja basin) which came under the authority of the Austrian monarchy. The same would also happen to the Lapac region, before under the Knin diocese, after liberation (1791) it would go to the Senj diocese. In 1969 the Rijeka-Senj archdiocese was founded into which all that region and the Croatian part of the Rijeka diocese entered. Finally in 2000 the Gospić-Senj diocese was founded to which the five deaneries of the Rijeka-Senj archdiocese went to: Gospić, Ogulin, Otočac, Senj and Slunj.
In the second part are the biographies of the bishops, chronologically listed, of all the previously mentioned dioceses. A total of 100 biographies. Amongst them are world-famous figures, such as Nikola of Modruš and Marco Antonio de Dominis, many of them are famous as diplomats in the service of popes and kings, to whom our people are indebted for their work, and the majority of these who by living with the people enlightened them with the spirit of the Gospels. The biographies are not written lexicographically. In the biographies the author has tried to also show the time in which the bishops lived, particularly the conditions in the dioceses that the bishops governed. For such an approach we have an enough data right from the beginning of the 17th century, as before that we have several cases where we are not even sure of the existence of a bishop’s mentioned name. As we get closer to our time so the literature and material multiplies greatly, so that it was necessary to separate only some characteristic information for an individual bishop from all that is known. The information of the first Gospić-Senj bishop Mile Bogović was processed in detail the most.
