Over the centuries, the theme of Christ’s death has inspired profound and passionate piousness as a path to the understanding and interpretation of his mystical suffering, which consequently acquired human character. Religious experience had its fruits in literature, too. The Passion theme was introduced into Croatian literature by anonymous authors as early as the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. It was further developed by the writers of the sixteenth century, who maintained the medieval mysticism and asceticism of the earlier period. The authors of the eighteenth century fashioned themselves after this literary tradition, its poetic standards and even verbal elaboration, embellishing thus the literary form with their own poetic individuality, as did Anica and Pero Bošković. The literary history of the eighteenth century traces but a few names among Franciscans, three of whom are worth singling out. Timotej Gleđ, the translator and Vlaho Letunić and Leopold Radić as authors, all of whom are brethren of the Friars minor in Dubrovnik, conceived literary and aesthetic forms based on the via crucis.
