All the faces of Judith

Apr 23 - Sep 15 2021       Ulica slobode 2
Judita by Marko Marulić is considered a capital work of Croatian literature. Judita is the first author's epic, the first poetic work sung in double-rhymed twelves, verses that rely on the original Croatian poetic tradition. It is based on the biblical story of Judita, a brave widow who sacrifices personal welfare for the salvation of her people. For centuries, it was also a stimulus to Croatian actors, directors, painters, and musicians. Many significant Croatian poetic, dramatic, artistic and musical works were created using the template of Marulić's Judita. The exhibition shows all the most significant Croatian editions of Marulić's Judita and literary, theatrical, and musical interpretations of Judita from the Library's collection.
