    History of the Bishops of Salona and Split
    Book Description:

    Ever since Thomas's Historia Salonitana was first published in 1666, it became a part of the corpus of European medieval literature. Thomas' aim was to write a history of the church of Split in order to prove that it was legally and justly the heir of the metropolitan rights of nearby Salona, an episcopal see from the 4th century. His reports on the fourth and the fifth crusade and on the Mongol invasion of 1241-2, are based on personal experience or on eyewitness reports. This is the 4th volume of the series of Central European Medieval Texts, Latin and English bilingual editions of major historical documents.

This work was first published and was given that name by Iohannes Lucius (Lučić) (1604–79), the father of modern Croatian historiography, in 1666.¹ With Lucius’editio princepsThomas’ work became a part of the corpus of European medieval literature: examples from it were already included in the first...

  8. HISTORIA SALONITANORUM ATQUE SPALATINORUM PONTIFICUM (pp. 2-380)

    Dalmatia secundum Ysidorum est prima pars Gretie¹ et dicitur a Delmi civitate antiqua, que ibi fuit, sed ubi hec civitas Delmis in Dalmatie partibus fuerit, non satis patet. Verum tamen Dalmatia dicebatur olim largius, censebatur enim cum Chrovatia una provintia.² Est enim regio quedam in superioribus partibus, que dicitur Delmina, ubi antiqua menia ostenduntur, ibi fuisse Delmis civitas memoratur.³ Nunc vero Dalmatia est regio maritima, incipiens ab Epyro, ubi est Dirachium⁴ et protenditur usque ad sinum Quarnarium, in cuius interioribus est oppidum Stridonis,⁵ quod Dalmatie Pannonieque confinium fuit. Hec fuit patria tellus beati Hieronymi, egregii doctoris. Dicta est Dalmatia etiam...
