This publication presents the results of years of archaeological research of the late medieval Castle of Barilović. By interpreting the movable finds and relations of architectural structures, valuable information was obtained for the reconstruction of the building phases and life in the castle. Barilović Castle was until recently thought to be an example of a 16th-century Military Frontier fortress. Research along with the protection efforts that the Croatian Conservation Institute has undertaken since 1998 revealed, however, that the castle was built sometime in the mid-15th century.
The booklet is published to mark the partial completion of conservation work on the Gothic choir stalls in St. Anastasia Cathedral in Zadar. Originally painted in vivid colours, the richly decorated and manifold stalls (with as many as 54 seats) were made by the Venetian wood carver Matej Moronzon on the commission of the Archbishop of Zadar Luka Turriani of Fermo in 1418.
