This graduate thesis focuses on the analysis and interpretation of the stone coats of arms of the medieval Šibenik from the 14th to the end of the 16th century. Coats of arms are studied using heraldics and history of art methodologies and they are contextualized into the urban space and period from which they originate. That allowed the reconstruction of certain aspects of social relations and social topography of the populace. Firstly, the coats of arms of Venetian officials and bishops of Sibenik can only be found on public and sacred buildings and structures, and those of local nobility can be found mostly on their private properties. Secondly, as objects of communication, venetian officials and bishops of Šibenik displayed their coats of arms to emphasize their efforts and contributions to certain construction projects, while local nobility displayed theirs to demarcate their territory or to emphasize their social status among the populace of Šibenik. Certain trends in stonecutting of coats of arms were recognized during stylistic analysis, that made the identification of them easier. All of the coats of arms are photodocumented, and most of them atributed and dated using relevant literature and sources. As an addition, a map was created, that presents the layout of the coats of arms in Šibenik.
