Abstracts
The subordinate social position of women in the old commune of Hvar (islands of Hvar and Vis) was codified in the communal Statute, as well as some of their rights. One of those rights was that to a dowry, and many documents in which women are mentioned are actually lists and estimates of items given in dowries. Such documents supply us with a variety of data concerning fashion, economic level and so forth of families those ladies were coming from or were married into. Although women of Hvar were mostly limited to domestic activities, they also worked as bakers, seamtresses, weavers etc. Some of them also engaged in healing other people by means of medicinal herbs; they were believed to be in touch with fairies and often suspected of witchcraft. The local women were also distinguished as lace-makers, some of their lace being preserved on church-vestments. Their education was scanty at the best (the first school for girls opened in Hvar only in 1826), but some who were literate left interesting notes in the vernacular Croatian.
