Commencing from the cultural dichotomy between rural hinterland (Morlach) and urban coastal (Romano-Slavic) Dalmatia, the author studies the similarities and diversities in the accounts of the then- -contemporary Venetian-Turkish wars in the works of Dalmatian writers of the 17th and 18th centuries. The analysed corpus of texts is made up of: chronicles of the Makarska Franciscans (P. Šilobadović, N. Gojak, P. Antulović); F. Divnić's historical account of the Candian War in Dalmatia; and works by J. Kavanjin, F. Grabovac and A. Kačić Miošić. The analysis focuses on: the mechanisms used in explanation and contextualisation of the wars in Dalmatia; evaluations of border area war strategy (pillaging and enslavement); the conception of the enemy and inter-Christian divisions (confessional, social, and the like). Finally, the accounts of war in the texts in question (narrative sources) are compared with published archive sources
