This master thesis speaks about bishop Maksimilijan Vrhovac from his early years across the period of josephinism to years in which he put bases of Croatian national revival. He was one of the most important and influential person in the Croatia in the late 18th and early 19th century. He was born in Karlovac in 1752. Vrhovac climbed quickly in the society and in a short time became the rector of the seminary, first in Zagreb, and later in Pest. In the year 1787. emperor Joseph II. appointed him as the new bishop of Zagreb diocese. Vrhovac was a supporter of the josephinistic ideas. Testimony to that actions are actions that bishop had undertaken when he arrived at bishop place and the fact that he was a freemason. After the death of emperor Joseph II., Vrhovac confronted with charge of abbot Ignjat Martinović that he participated in subversive conspiracy, but he managed to prove his innocence. After passing these dangers he turned to the activities that will lay the bases of Croatian national revival. He developed a widespread activities in the political, socio-medical, religious, economic and cultural-linguistic field. Vrhovac died in Zagreb in 1827.
