Summary
The paper discusses the relationship between the (Croatian) theatre historiography and the (Croatian) national identity, a topic rarely considered in Croatian theatre studies. In order to study the role of national paradigm in the construction of theatre historiography and the role of theatre historiography in the construction of national identity, the analysis is conducted in two directions, from the idea of nation towards theatre historiography and vice versa. The paper focuses on several Croatian theatre histories and several examples from Croatian theatre history.
