The author of this article presents and theologically evaluates the relation of Catholic professors on the Faculty of theology in Zagreb, regarding the belief in the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whom they sent to the Holy See, visibly at its request, U.S. 1949, so, before formal definition (1.11.1950). Relation is a memorandum in the name of all professors, signed by the then decan prof. Janko Oberški, but it's composer was prof. Stjepan Bakšić. the then professor of dogmatic theology. Included in its final formulation were also other professors, such as professor Živković, Kniewald, Lach, Pavić and others...
They clearly expressed their conviction that the truth about Mary's Assumption with body in Heaven, is in the Scriptures revealed truth of faith which is confessed by all Christians through the centuries, in the West, as well as the East, and they explicitly ask the Pope that it be proclaimed public dogma. Their peculiarity is the belief that Mary died a natural death before the Assumption. In explicate unanimous agreement, Zagreb's theology professors call for testimony of belief in the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Zagreb's Church, which since the 11th century in it's own ceremony on the ordained Church holiday which Croats call the »Great Lady« (Assumption), confesses this belief in the Cathedral which from the beginning has consecrated the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. They also call for piety, which through the centuries has been expressed in Eastern churches (Orthodox and Greek - Catholic) in the celebration of the »Uspenje« (»Sleep«) of Mary in our region, and which is seen in the names of many churches and in their own church art. This relation represents the specific Croatian contribution, in Catholic Mariology in general, as well as in the direct definition of dogma on the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
