After an initial definition of satire, the article establishes the texts from medieval and Renaissance literature that are defined in the discipline as satire. Thematic preoccupations in the first Croatian satirical poems are sketched out, with the dominant strategies of the satirical attack and, finally, the occasional invocation of Roman satire by the Croatian satirical writers. It is concluded that in the beginnings of Croatian literature satire came into being sporadically rather than systematically and that apart from at the thematic level there is no significant continuity, that indeed it is more reasonable to speak of multiply repeated beginnings.
