Summary/Abstract: Since Bosnian krstjani emerged at the end of the 12th century, Bosnian Catholic bishops lived under constant pressure to fight the heretics. Alone, they were powerless against the forces of heresy. The bishops were subject to the Hungarian Church and very much depended on the support from their Bosnian ruler, Hungarian king and Rome to protect orthodoxy. Due to uncertain political currents, they were left without the support from their Bosnian ruler, at the mercy of the Hungarian king, so they recoiled to a landed property of Đakovo in Slavonia – first temporarily then permanently. Yet, through their entire history they were torn between Hungary, Croatia and Bosnia. They remained in Đakovo and became the bishops of Bosnia and Đakovo and, eventually, formed the great Đakovo or Bosnia and Srijem bishopric, which was always very close to Bosnia.
