The article deals with Old Catholicism in the village of Šaptinovci near Našice (Slavonia, Croatia), as one among numerous interesting phenomena ilustrating popular religiosity in the Našice area. Old Catholicism is the movement resulting from reformatory processes which took place in the framework of Catholic Church in Croatia in 1920's. Only few researches have so far dealt with the causes, phenomenon and activities of movement and they are mosty historians, sociologists or theologists. However, the basic objective of the author's ethnological research is to record and to describe the development of Old Catholic Church, taking as an example the village of Šaptinovci because it is the only still existing Old Catholic Church country parish in Croatia. The ways in which Old Catholicizm has reflected and influencedevery day life in the village are also analyzed.
