Sažetak

The Bishop of Senj Franjo Jožefić (who died in 1551) belongs to the influential people of Croatian history from the 16th century who put their force and diplomatic abilities into the service behind the liberation of Croatia and Hungary from the Turks. In 1522 Pope Leon X named him the bishop of Senj and within a year he participated in the Nuremberg Parliament as a deputy for the Hungarian-Croatian King. Here he tried with his eloquent speech to convince his listeners of the necessity to help Hungary and Croatia with military means as well as with money because they were unable to resist Ottoman attacks on their own. At the same time help became self-help because it was understand that if Croatia and Hungary became part of the Ottoman Empire, Austrian lands and other parts of Europe would no longer be safe. After this mission he tried hard to get some help from other European monarchies in the fight against the Turks. Politically he was indecisive between King John Zapolja and Ferdinand I. First he helped the Zapolja party then he went into the service of Ferdinand I. In 1549 he was moved to Trieste and here he made his last great decision: he became a protestant and was dismissed to Klana where he died in 1551.
