Summary/Abstract: Within the framework of oral (folk) literature and through the lense of literary-animalistic research, exemple, or moral anecdotes, have a special place. This short literary form, whose point of departure should be analyzed through European oral literature, is a key element of the sermon. In animalistic example the subject matter consists of animals that reflect various human characteristics and also act as a means for explaining abstract ideas such as time, transience, beauty, paradise. In this paper we focus on the popular example How Sweet are the Songs of Heaven (Kako su slatke piesni nebeske), the title given by fra Matija Divković in his Sermons (Besjede).
