Bartol Kašić

(Pag, 15 August 1575 – Rome, 28 December 1650) After the Reformation movement undermined the unity of the Western Christendom, Rome was forced to look for a new way to reform itself. It was the way of the affirmation of language, spoken by the living people, the so-called “vernacular language.” By carefully starting to teach and educate a wide range of uneducated people, Rome turned towards nations that inhabited the peripheral regions in eastern and south-eastern Europe, that remained faithful to the Catholic church during the Reformation.

Benedikt Kotruljević

(Dubrovnik, c. 1416 – Aquila or Naples, 1469) “It has been more than 110 years since patrician Benedikt Kotruljević of Dubrovnik, a man of expert scientific knowledge and an experienced merchant, wrote four books on the subject that, as he warned, nobody ever addressed since the beginning of time, i.e. the trading skill.” Thus, in 1573, the renowned Croatian philosopher Frane Petrić started his introduction to the printed edition of On Trade and the Perfect Merchant by Benedikt Kotruljević of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik and commerce always represented an indivisible union, and the Ragusan Republic owed its progress in the “golden age” of the 15th and 16th centuries precisely to the affirmation of trade.
