  • Interdisciplinary Studies: Researching Saint Jerome's spiritual and cultural heritage in the Middle Ages, focusing on his influence on Glagolitic script and manuscripts.
  • Humanism and Renaissance Studies: Studying Saint Jerome's representation during the humanism and Renaissance periods, particularly his presence in the works of Croatian theologians, philosophers, historians, writers, and artists.
  • Publications: Publishing printed and electronic, scholarly and popular editions to promote a better understanding of Saint Jerome.
