Abstract

As during the time of appearance and flourishing of Romanticism — when national concience began to be the most important culture-
historical postulate — Yugoslav Academy of Arts and Science (in following text JAZU) in Zagreb in the second half of 19. cent, promoted and established conception of editing of ancient Croatian authors, so it was logical that in this frames has been promoted interest for Croatian Latinism. Croatian literature, namely in broader and narrower sense, in all its developing phases, more or less, but constantly, has used two language mediums, Latin firstly, and Croatian mostly, and that from the early Middle Ages to the middle of 19. cent. It is impossible
understand any writer or poet of the Croatian lingual expression,
of the Renaissance — when took place the revival of the interest and comprehension of the debt to classical basis of the European and our development — or of the Baroque, when with the same motive it is hither connected also the Christian tradition, all to the Miroslav Krleza and forward, and it is also incomplete without the conscience of belonging to this Latin and Latin-script European cultural and literary courses.
So it began searching, finding and editing of texts and commentaries
from the rich heritage of Croatian Latinists of all literary and scientific genres, their translations, often in bilingual editions. JAZU has edited the first dictionary of Croatian Latinism of Middle Ages. Anthologies and chrestomathies, monographical literary and linguistic surveies of certain works and authors have been edited. In secondary- and high-school teaching entered lections and researching of the Croatian
Latinism.
