Summary: Research and verification of the archival material in Vienna and other European metropolis, including social, political, cultural, scientific, religious and Jesuit history of Croatia within the system of the Central Europe till 1918.

Keywords: history, science, philology, grammatology, lexicography, politics, diplomacy, culture, arts, Croatia, Europe, Jesuits, theatrology, schools, missions and missionaries.

Research goals: The aim of the investigation is research of civilizational exchanges based on archive material in Vienna and other centres of Central Europe, i. e. the reception and contribution of Croatia to the cultural, religious, artistic, scientific, and politico-diplomatic life of Central Europe from the 16th to the 20th centuries. This project intends to achieve its aim by investigating personal contributions of influential persons, as well as of thematic groups and the Jesuit Order, having been active in Croatia and Central Europe in various fields of social, cultural, educational, scientific, and politico-diplomatic life of the time. The influence of Jesuit lexicographers and linguists on the standardization of the Croat literary language throughout the centuries, as well as Jesuit activities through education, science and missions will also be the subject of these studies. This project is part of a comprehensive research programme of the Croatian Historical Institute in Vienna. In order to complete the research, this Institute will also include the results of work of its branch in Budapest which is at the foundation stage. Our opinion is that all these results represent a considerable contribution to Croatian historiography, especially to the knowledge of the role of the Church, distinguished Croats, and Jesuits, in the social, cultural, religious, scientific, and political life in Central Europe between the 16th and 20th centuries.
