Colloquia Maruliana XIII, Seite 67--88. Split, Književni krug Split, Marulianum, (2004)The Dialogus de Hercule a Christicolis superato is a twenty-page text written in about 1519, but not printed until June 13 1524, six months after the death of its author. This text is important for philological study of Marko Marulić, being the only one of his writings that we can read both in the autograph and in a contemporary printed edition. Moreover, this text very clearly --- both by its contents and by its physical appearance --- signalises its affiliation to Renaissance Humanism. The Dialogus provides points of reference for assessing how much can we trust the printed works of Marulić, and how does Maruić write when he intends to write as a Humanist..
