Location: Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments (Ulica Stjepana Gunjače bb, 21000 Split)
Duration: April 30, 2021 - June 30, 2021
The exhibition is part of the project Discovering Marjan, which, through the cooperation of several institutions, promotes the cultural and natural heritage of Marjan.
The co-organizers of this exhibition, set up at the Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments in Split, are the Institute of Art History, the Public Institution for the Management of Marjan Park-Forest, and the Brotherhood of the Holy Cross.
The exhibition aims to show the ways of spreading the cult of St. Jere in Dalmatia, especially from the end of the 14th century. The cult of Jerome is attested in our tradition as early as the beginning of the 13th century. Jere was considered a Dalmatian, i.e. a Croat. He was the creator and protector of the Glagolitic alphabet and even a translator of the Bible into Croatian.
It is the first major exhibition with iconographic depictions of St. Jerome and taking place as the crown of a series of events related to the national celebration of the 1600th anniversary of the saint’s death, which unfortunately took place in a suppressed atmosphere due to the current epidemiological situation.
The exhibition will be officially opened on April 29, 2021, at 06:00 p.m., following epidemiological measures with a limited number of visitors and invitations. Visits are possible every day from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., from April 30 to June 30, 2021.
Supporters of the exhibition are the Split-Dalmatia County, the City of Split, the City of Solin, and the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia.
The sponsor of the exhibition is Croatia osiguranje.
