Summary/Abstract: The auxiliary Bishop of Zagreb, the Jesuit Mijo Škvorc (1919-1989), was prolific in many areas of spirituality, a fact supported not only by his published works, but also by a rich legacy that has not been fully explored yet. Since Škvorc was a professor of Philosophy at the Jesuit Philosophical-Theological Institute in Zagreb, he was wellversed in the history of philosophy, especially, of course, classical scholastic philosophy of Aristotelian provenance, and the philosophy of existence, but also Marxist thought. Through a direct approach to texts by Škvorc and their interpretation, the authors set out to reveal Škvorc’s attitude toward Marxism, specifically to the Marxist understanding of religious, anthropological, ethical and social issues. Furthermore, they seek to highlight the major themes of historical debate led by Škvorc in 1967, with Professor Branko Bošnjak (1923-1996), the Croatian praxis philosopher. This debate certainly can be considered as the beginning of a dialogue between Christians and Marxists in this region.
