Abstract

From its foundation in 1692 until present days confraternity of St. Anthony of Padua operates in parish of Assumption of Blessed Virgin Mary in Kaštel Lukšić. It is more than obvious that during three centuries this confraternity had important role in the life of this settlement. The work and activities of the fraternity can be examined on the basis of Marigula – statute of the confraternity. The chief task of this fraternity was promulgation and cherishing of piety towards its patron St. Anthony. Moreover, fraternity took care of funeral ceremonies of its members, and organized requiems in the parish church at the altar of St. Anthony, which was attended by the fraternity members. The confraternity also had a charity function helping poor within the city. Author discusses regulations from the confraternity statute and delivers a complete transcription of the statute.
