During the past centuries, especially in the period of Venetian rule over most of the eastern coast, an important factor connecting and intertwining the two neighbouring Adriatic coasts were the indigenous groups of Croatian immigrants in Venice. In this paper, the focus is on the spiritual people from Split, who in Venice were registered as temporary or permanent immigrants. Along with the existing knowledge of historiography, the paper also makes use of the archival records stored in the National Archives in Venice (testament papers, inventories, investigative processes of the Venetian inquisition). Based on these documents and the knowledge of historiography, the records of spiritual people from Split in the testaments of Croatian immigrants are analysed, some citizens of Split mentioned in the processes of the Venetian inquisition are pointed out as well as the activity of some other prominent people in Venice.
