Sažetak
Croatian lands in the 18 th century belonged to several separate political entities. The north-western territory, officially autonomous as Kingdoms of Croatia and Slavonia, was a part of the Kingdom of Hungary and with it also of the Habsburg Monarchy ; a portion on the East was still occupied by the Ottoman Empire, with the border lands between those two forming the so-called Military Frontier, governed directly by the Imperial Court of Vienna. Dubrovnik was an autonomous republic and the rest of the coastal region, Dalmatia and Istria, was under the rule of the Republic of Venice. Divided not only in territory, but also in the language itself, composed of three rather distinct dialects, Croatians managed to preserve their national identity, and created a standard language in the time of national revival in the 19th century. This paper examines, through examples of writers and public figures of both sexes, as well as official legislature, the various languages that were used by the Croats in various aspects of their life and works, such as Latin (language of education, literature and communication that helped to unify the divided nation), German, Italian and French. It analyses how this multilingualism reflected the political and social views of an individual and the reasons for particular choices. Special attention is payed to the role the Latin language, in comparison to Croatian, played in literature and in socio-political life, and to the spheres in which it was used.
