In this article, the author deals with specific liturgical objects - paxes wich have not been described thoroughly so far, making an effort to present the historical development of these objects, as well as to provide liturgical background of the artistic scenes they embody. A subdivision of the renaissance paxes found along the Croatian coast is fully detailed and devided into three major groups. The paxes have been attributed to several authors of the renaissance Italy and their workshops: Moderno, goldsmith and medallist should be pointed out, as well as Giovani Battista Briziano, sculptor from Mantua, who was mostly engaged by the Gonzago family
