Introduction / History

From 697 to 1797 there was a Venetian Republic. It was one of the first modern republics. When the Venetians defeated Genoa, it became the most powerful maritime power, especially from the 1400s-1500s. Their power extended to Croatian and Slovenia. Some of them settled in these two places at that time. Venetians were often great merchants ship owners who had tremendous power in international trade. Marco Polo was among them. They were finally forced to become part of Italy at the end of the 1700s. Italy became a nation state in the 1860s, and Venice was part of the new nation.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Venetians might hold just about any job in Croatia or Slovenia.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Venetians identify as Roman Catholics. Like many other European Catholics, the Venetians are often secular in their worldview. However, they will be married and buried by the Roman Catholic Church.


What Are Their Needs?

Venetians need to put all their faith in the person, Jesus Christ, rather than a religious institution.


Prayer Points

Pray for Venetians to put all their faith in Jesus Christ.
Pray for Venetian disciples to make more disciples.
Pray for the Lord to send the wind of his Holy Spirit to purify the Roman Catholic Church in Slovenia.
