Croatian Latin epic – a finding list

We give here names of authors and translators, title of the work, number of verses (if known), number of cantos or poems (if the text is fragmentary, it is so described), year of writing or the terminus post quem non (uncertain dates have a question mark), and year of first publication (where applicable). If a poem is still in manuscript, the signature is listed. The list is ordered by the earliest date listed. The names of Croatian authors, which often have their Latin, Italian, Hungarian etc. variants, are given in forms common in modern Croatian literary histories.
