No. 3 MARCH 2019.

Two decades following the extraction from the seabed of the famed Croatian Apoxyomenos, an antiquity period statue currently on display at the European Parliament in Brussels, the March issue of the CHF’s monthly Matica magazine offers a ten-page spread featuring the wonder of Lošinj island, its history and natural beauty. On his 430th birthday we write of Ivan Gundulić, one of the masters of Croatian literature and, on her 155th birthday, of teacher Jagoda Truhelka, a forerunner among Croatian feminists. We also cover some of the many Croatian Roman Catholic missions abroad as they celebrate their fiftieth anniversaries.
