The purpose of the course is to explain the concept of the Croatian early modern age and to define the periodization, as well as the most important events in that period. On this basis, the political and administrative division of Croatian historical countries during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries will be presented, as well as the organization and functioning of military border societies. Due attention will be paid to the organization of the Croatian space during the early modern age. The institutions of church government and their transformation in Croatia will also be presented. Furthermore, the early modern social structures in the Croatian area under Habsburg, Ottoman and Venetian jurisdiction will be analyzed. The specific development of the Republic of Dubrovnik will take its place within the content of this course.
