The ascetic science of Benedikt Rogačić
This article is a brief presentation of the life and works of the esteemed Jesuit from Dubrovnik, Benedikt Rogacic (1646-1719). Aside from priestly and pedagogic activities. Rogacic was the author of a number of works in Italian and Latin, including a successful Italian grammar, extensive poetry and the lengthy "Dell'Uno Necessario" containing a wealth of scholastic analyses and psychological observations as well as religious writings, history and above all a mystical ecstatic relationship with God. Halamhek is of the opinion that such a work deserves to have been made a required aesthetic text, imbued as if is with a sense of the suprnatural, joy, optimism, in addition to all the seriousness and rigorousness of Christian aspiration toward sanctification.
