Pre-Romanesque stone furnishings from Church of St. Peter the Old in Lučac, Split

Journal of Dalmatian archaeology and history, Vol.1 No.100 (2007)

Abstract: In this work, the author analyzes two until now neglected pieces of the altar screen from the Church of St. Peter the Old in Lučac, a section of Split. In addition to a well-known and oft-published pediment, based on a photograph from the Archaeological Museum’s photo archives and the inventory log, one more pediment from the same church has been identified.

A pluteus published long before is once more interpreted and linked to the Church of St. Peter the Old, as its provenance was forgotten with time. Both monuments date to the end of the eleventh century as works of one of the already known masonry workshops in Split which operated at the close of the pre-Romanesque period, producing stone furnishings for churches in Split and Trogir.
