Chapter Summary

Vinko Pribojević's Oratio promoted a new model of Dalmatian patriotism, one that was consciously built on the Slavic character of sixteenth century Dalmatia. The seeds of early Italian Renaissance historiography, which "fused enthusiasm for ancient models with pride in the contemporary patria, the city-state, "very quickly spread over the Adriatic Sea and found fertile soil among Dalmatian humanists. Pribojević approached his sources armed with the same "weapons" that had been used by scholars since the early Middle Ages for asserting someone's ethnicity, namely descent, language and customs. This chapter demonstrates his practical application of these criteria, through the descriptive analysis of the three examples of his argument in favor of the Slavic identity of various ethnic groups from antiquity.

Keywords: Dalmatian patriotism; Vinko Pribojević's oratio
