Matthias Flacius Illyricus is reputed to have been one of the most influential Croatian humanists and theologians of the 16th century. Through his numerous works, he gave an efficient theological, philosophical, historical, linguistic and educational contribution to European cultural history. Besides a concise review of Flacius’ life, the article discusses the truth as Flacius’ starting point in his arguments and in life in general. Then it focuses on Flacius’ spiritual/ theological struggle for the freedom of the church which contributed greatly to the defeat of the pro-Catholic politics of Emperor Charles V and the survival of the Lutheran tradition of the Reformation in the German countries.
