Abstract

The rich history of Dubrovnik inspired historians and researchers already at the time the Dubrovnik Republic flourished, and especially after its termination in 1808. During the Illyric movement (1835-1848) special interest grew for Dubrovnik literature and after 1860 also for other cultural activities in the former Dubrovnik state. In 1906, citizens of Dubrovnik and various institutions raised funds and organized the Foundation for Research on the History of Dubrovnik. The aim of this institution was to issue a publication, »Dubrovački Arhiv,« [»The Dubrovnik Archives«) and other works on history, produced as a result of Achives’ scientific research. World War I hindered the Foundation’s working plans. The money collected by the Foundation was invalidated by wartime and postwar inflation. In 1924 these funds were handed over to the new institution in Dubrovnik: »Sv. Vlaho« [»St. Blaise«], which continued the scientific and historiographic tradition. After this transfer the Foundation, and the Institute for Research on the History of Dubrovnik ceased to exist. These two institutions had been the first organized entities in Dubrovnik which dealt with the city’s history. Although they did not accomplish their tasks, they remarkably influenced efforts to research and elaborate the history of Dubrovnik, which was of essential scientific and cultural necessity.
