Abstract

The session deals with the reflection of Church reforms on the ecclesiastical circles in the territories of present-day Croatia in the Middle Ages. The first paper will discuss the influence of 11th-century Church Reform on the foundation of the local Benedictine nunneries. The second paper will explore spiritual, organisational, and economic situation in a Croatian Benedictine abbey, and whether the use of Glagolitic literacy was the result of reform or tradition. The third paper deals with the reaction of clergy within the Diocese of Zagreb to the adherents of the Council of Basel and the anti-Pope Felix V.
