St John’s Church in Stari Grad on Hvar Island

Jasna Jeličić Radonić

Abstract


 The Church of St John in Stari Grad was built within the Greek insula, converted in Roman times, alongside the eastern gate of the city. Archaeological excavations revealed a unique heritage complex of city walls and residential architecture within which the still preserved northern Early Christian church (St John’s) represents the starting point for the creation and development of the Christianity of the Hvar diocese and the island of Hvar.
