Exhibition: “Modrave on Old Maps”

This Saturday, September 23rd, at 7:30 PM, we are opening the exhibition “Modrave on Old Maps” by author Kristijan Juran. The exhibition is the result of research from the scientific project “Modrave – Cultural Landscape in Historical Perspective,” organized by the University of Zadar since 2021. The project is dedicated to researching the dynamics of agricultural use and cultural shaping of Modrave from the 15th to the 19th century. To implement the project, topographic maps and cadastral maps of the Modrava area from the 18th and 19th centuries were digitized, stored in the State Archives in Zadar and the State Archives in Split.

The exhibition opening will be preceded by a lecture presenting the project, which will take place at the Presentation Center in Betina at 6:30 PM.

The author of the exhibition, Ph.D. Kristijan Juran, is a university professor in the Department of History at the University of Zadar, where he teaches Croatian history of the early modern period. His scientific research focuses on rural communities, migration movements, and land holdings in the Dalmatian communes in the late Middle Ages and early modern period, as well as the Dalmatian Glagolitic heritage, especially its component in Šibenik. He has published six books and over 50 scientific and professional papers. He is the leader of the interdisciplinary scientific project “Modrave – Cultural Landscape in Historical Perspective,” funded by the University of Zadar (2021–2023).
