Rev. Ante Alfirević, who in February 1919 started his two years preparations (novitiate) for taking his priest vows in the Society of Jesus, to remain its member until his death, and Rev. Frane Bulić, are among the best known priests of the Church of Split. Rev. Frane, although an archaeologist by vocation, was a grammar school teacher, director of the Archaeological Museum in Split, and a conservator. Over a period of time he was also politically active. Most of his time he dedicated to researches, studies and presentation of the historic heritage of Salona. He wrote several books and articles, and for his work he received recognitions from Croatia and abroad. On the other hand, according to Slavko Kovačić, PhD, Rev. Ante Alfirević was the best educated priest in the philosophy and theology in the Split-Makarska Bishopric of the early 20th century, but also most active in the religious-clerical fields of public and cultural lives. At the same time, he was a seminary counsellor, grammar school teacher, writer, magazine editor, founder and leader of student and other catholic organisations, and also,
among others, and advocate of founding agricultural cooperatives in Dalmatia. The paper authors’ intention is to clarify the relationships between these two versatile priests, based on published and unpublished archive materials and published papers.
