Remeber me

organizers: Croatian Restoration Institute, Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
exhibition conceived by: Andrej Janeš, Ph.D. (CRI) and Jasna Ujčić Grudenić (PPMHP)
exhibition opening: 28 July 2023 at 6 p.m.
the exhibition will remain open until 30 October 2023

Ahead of the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, an exhibition in our museum’s Grand Atrium will present devotional objects held in the museum’s Archaeology Department which were gathered during archaeological excavations around parish churches in Rijeka and Mošćenice.
Devotional objects are those which encourage and spread piety and evoke religious mysteries. These include small medals, medallions, crosses, talismans and rosaries that were particularly popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. Among them the most numerous are the small medals bearing images of Jesus or Mary, various saints, sacred objects or places.
The small medals from Rijeka and Trsat are particularly intriguing because it is believed that they were crafted in local workshops.
