Late Medieval Croatia. Challenges, Opportunities, Outcomes

Faculty Tower 409


Borislaw Grgin

University of Zagreb

This lecture will present an overview of the social, political, economic and cultural development in medieval Croatia from the end of the fourteenth until the second quarter of the sixteenth century. This development will be followed through events, structures, and processes that had the most profound impact on Croatian history in this period. The aim is to try to detect those challenges and opportunities that were crucially important and their effects on various social groups in late medieval Croatia.
