Grgur Ninski

Gregory of Nin (Croatian: Grgur Ninski, pronounced [ɡr̩̂ɡuːr nîːnskiː]) was a medieval Croatian bishop of Nin who strongly opposed the Pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the national language in the religious services after the Great Assembly in 926, according to traditional Croatian historiography. Until that time, services were held only in Latin, not being understandable to the majority of the population. Not only was this important for Croatian language and culture but it also made Christianity stronger within the Croatian kingdom.
