Abstracts
The Order of Saint Augustine was founded in 1244 by consolidating several eremitical groups in the Tuscany region that followed the Rule of St. Augustine, written by the Saint of Hippo in the 5th century. In its establishment in its current form, it was shaped as a mendicant order, one of the four great orders which follow that way of life.

The Order of St. Augustine was in fact the first religious community in Rijeka. The monastery, founded by the Devin and Walsee families (the feudal lords of Rijeka), existed from the 14th century until 1788, when it was dissolved by Joseph II. The archives suffered two major disasters: in 1509, when the Venetians partially destroyed it, and in 1788, the year of its closure. The Augustinian archives remained partially in the State Archives in Rijeka, but the largest part of its precious fund was displaced.

Unfortunately the past of the Augustinian Convent of St. Jerome is mostly unknown. On the basis of almost unexplored sources in Croatia and overseas, the author reveals several facts about the Rijeka’s Augustinian community in the 15th century.

In the successful German branch of the Bavarian province, the history of the Order of St. Augustine in Rijeka in the 15th century links the city and its region to Central Europe – specifically to Bavaria, Bohemia, Austria, Slovenia and Italy. The Augustinian community was an important factor in Rijeka’s feudal society and the surrounding communities with mills, ovens, vineyards, orchards in Andrejšćica, Cecilinovo (Mlaka), Mihačeva Draga, Rečice, Klana, Kastav, Dubašnica (on the island of Krk), Lipa, Studena, and the Slovenian villages of Podgraje, Žabiče, Kuteževo and Trpčane. The paper includes important information concerning the existence of a hospital at the Andrejšćica location in Rijeka, established in the 15th century, which was previously unknown. The most famous member of Augustinian community in the Middle Ages was Mark, a prior and bishop, who served in the diplomatic corps of Hungarian-Croatian King Matthias Corvinus. The Gothic Holy Trinity Chapel, currently a sacristy situated beside the eastern cloister, was constructed in 1450 by Rijeka’s captain at the time, Raunacher.
