Abstract

In the paper the author analyses the Flower of Virtue (Cvêt od krêposti) in the Tkon Miscellany from the 16th century, a Croatian Glagolitic collection of various texts among which a special significance has the translation of a popular Italian work Fiore di Virtù. The appearance of this work in Western European literature has a special place in relation to pondering upon human flaws and virtues that have always been of human interest in the context of their understanding and description. A special attention is given to the relationship of the human towards the animal as well as to the place of the animal in understanding of oneself with a particular reflection to envy as a human flaw and its comparison to a kite bird.
