One way of sacralising landscape in the Middle Ages was undoubtedly through the construction of religious buildings dedicated to specific patron saints. Often these saints were also the patron saints of the settlements in which the sacred building, dedicated to them, was located. In a number of examples it can be noted that one of the products of this process was a settlement's name, or names of a smaller spatial units within the landscape, which have roots in a personal name, i.e., the name of a saint – hagiotoponyms. In this context I will present an example of the medieval settlement of Ivanić, today's Kloštar Ivanić, which appears in 1246 as villa Iwanch. This is an interesting example because the church of St John the Baptist was built in the early 16th century, but the name of the settlement, as a potential product of sacralisation, indicates the existence of earlier religious building dedicated to the same patron, i.e. indicates the continuity of the worship of St John. Also, it is customary to hold annual fairs tied to the patron saints of the settlement ; therefore, a written record about the fair on Midsummer in 1438 could be seen as support to the above mentioned thesis. Already in the second half of the 13th century the name of the settlement has been used as a name of a newly formed unit of the Episcopal estate or county (comitatus Iwanch) with the administrative centre in Ivanić. An interesting fact could be related to the phrase Insula Iwanich which appears in the late medieval written sources. The same phrase is still in use as a mark of a geographical area that overlaps with the area of the medieval administrative unit of Episcopal estate/County of Ivanić. Furthermore, the name “Ivanić” was taken over by the nearby settlement at the river Lonja, mentioned in 1503 (Ivanić Lonia) ; in later history it’s Ivanić-Tvrđa [Ivanić- Fort], present-day Ivanić-Grad [Ivanić-Town].
