This study deals with Ivan Lucic-Lucius (Giovanni Lucio, Iohannes Lucius) (1604–1679), the father of the Croatian historiography and his manuscript heritage which contains more than 2000 mostly medieval documents. In 2015, a research group came into existence at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest led by Tamás Körmendi to research the manuscripts, particularly the unpublished documents of the Árpádian and Angevin era and the author of this study is a member of the group. In this paper, I present Ivan Lucic-Lucius’s life, scholarship, research methodology and analyze his place in the Croatian historiography. The main subject of the paper is the manuscript heritage which is a collection of sources gathered together by Ivan Lucic-Lucius and his colleagues, friends, and family members from all around Dalmatia from the 1630s. Ivan Lucic-Lucius and his helpers researched in many secular, ecclesiastical and family archives, copied documents, and after a critical analysis, Lucic-Lucius arranged them by regions and put them in writing in chronological order. Many of the collected sources were published in his works, but hundreds of them are still kept in Ivan Lucic-Lucius’s heritage while the original documents, from which they were copied, are lost by now. The manuscripts are kept in the Archbishopric Archive of Split and a twentieth-century handwritten copy also exists in the Archive of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Zagreb. The heritage of twelve books contains hundreds of unpublished medieval documents for example Hungarian royal and ducal privileges, documents of the urban administration and the burghers of many Dalmatian towns, charters that can be connected to the Hungarian administration in Dalmatia, and ecclesiastical documents.
