The first set of calendars written in Croatian language in Latin alphabet was written and edited by Pavao Ritter Vitezović from the year 1691 to the year 1705. These calendars represent a valuable source and insight into Croatian natural scientific terminology. In addition to the general calendar information and tables they also list short records about natural events, review of the apparent position and interpersonal aspects of the planets and constellations, tables of sunrise and sunset, the start and end of civil twilight in the area of Zagreb, the time of entry of the Moon in each phase, descriptions and precise details of eclipses of the Sun and the Moon, as well as various meteorological forecasts and astrological advice. At the turn of the 17th into the 18th century, when Vitezović wrote and edited Croatian calendars, there were just a few texts about natural science in Croatian language. Because the calendars described celestial phenomena and included both astronomical and astrological annex, Vitezović had to use scientific terminology and professional mode of expression. Calendars don't only reflect on the cultural and scientific context but also on the needs of society which they were written for. They also reveal Vitezović as connoisseur of astronomy and indicate his mathematical knowledge and skills necessary for the construction of such texts about astronomical theory and astrological content. Vitezovic work on calendars and part of his scientific terminology and vocabulary was received not only by younger authors in the 18th century but also later in the 19th century. That is when the development calendars in the period of Enlightenment played a significant role in the education of the Croatian people.
