Summary: "Slavonian genre system" and stylistic characteristic of literary texts written at the end of 17. and beginning of 18. century were insufficiently researched and present in the literary history. The participants of this Project tried to remedy that through documental research and reading of literary texts from that period. It's only now, after finished research, organised Symposium (where were presented papers even by those scientist that were not involved in the Project), and the publication of the Proceedings, that we can talk with relevance about theoretical and historical questions regarding the presence of baroque variety on Slavonian literary ground. Proceedings KEYS TO THE PARADISE (outcome of the research) elaborate in a number of essays through various approaches, analyses of Tomo Matić, Dragutin Prohaska, Matko Peić, who, by then, dealt with 18. century Slavonian literature in most detailed way.

Keywords: baroque, elements and variants, primary and secondary genres, laugh, idea-thematic level,

Research goals: Before we started with the work on this Projekt we were aware of the fact that following groups of writers were not researched enough: ecclesiastic and religious writers of Counter-Reformation (Šimun Mecić, Nikola Kesić, Emerik Pavić,Đuro Rapić, etc.), futher, writers of classicist ratinalism from the period of Enlightment (Ivan Velikanović, Jerolim Lipovčić),and Kačić's imitators from Slavonia and writers of so called war literature in Slavonia (Adam Tadija Blagojević, Josip Krmpotić, Josip Milunović, etc.). The fact that Croatian literature at the end of 17. and beginning of 18. century in Slavonia is in its greater part unknown resulted with following objectives of proposed Project: 1) Besides rereading of authors already analysed and dealt with, our research is expanded on, so far, unknown corpus, both printed and in manuscripts. Elements of baroque are recognised (thematical, stylistic and genre) and representatives singled out. 2) The corpus is being evaluated and some new information is added to what we already know about Slavonian literature of Croatian literary baroque, the reading of which is conducted in the context of Croatian literature of 17. and 18. century. 3) Work on this Project inspires some of the researchers to dedicate their significant scientific work to 18. century Slavonian literature (e.g. the Ph.d. thesis of Zlata Šundalić, has to do with liturgical genres of 18. century). 4) First results of the research are presented on the Symposium Croatian literary baroque and 18. century Slavonian literature (Osijek-Požega, 10-12 Nov., 1993). This Symposium expanded the subject of the Project. Not only distinguished schoolars took part in this project but also young teachers who had just finished their studies of Croatian language and literature and who during the course of their studies showed interest for literary corpus of the Project. Thirty papers presented on the Symposium explained some general problems of 18. century Slavonien literature, analysed some of the genres, interpreted some of the writers (with the stress on Antun Kanižlić), drew attention to previous interpretations and different approaches, pointed out literary connections of that period and explained the language of 18. century Slavonian writers. 5) The work on the research (esp. of those involved in the Project) is continued even after the Symposium. Some texts that are related to the same topic are written, although these authors are not actively involved in the Project itself (e.g. the text by Dubravka Crnojević Carić: Interpretation of Slavonian Judita, which was presented at the first Slavistic Congress in Pula, and is published in the Revija). The research is concluded by publishing of Proceedings, that is to say, the collection of the papers presented at the Symposium. The papers show the depth of the discussed topics and justify the four year long research.
