A group of Croatian missionaries active overseas comprised prominent explorers, geographers, cartographers, and some of them were philosophical authors. Their contemporaries, also missionaries, or historians and chroniclers (M. Dobrizhoffer, F. Paucke, A. Eckart, F. Clavijero, and others), wrote about their work, and their activities and thought were discussed by a number of subsequent American and European historians and researchers. I finally focus on some of the Croatian philosophical authors who brought novel ideas into the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and their work was evaluated by the older and the more recent historians from the neighboring countries.
