The article contains a description of certain customs and beliefs of the Šolta islanders in the interrim between the two world wars. Šolta is a small island near the city of Split; this proximity has always shaped the destiny of the island. From the Middle Ages Šolta was a possession of the Split commune, the Split nobility and the Church. Even at the turn of the 20th century, Šolta islanders were tenant farmers, meaning that they gave their owners, or the overseers of the land a part of their income. At the turn of the century, the people of Šolta bought their land from their previous owners, but continued to live in poverty and strenuous labor. The Šolta islanders have always worked the land. They raised grape vines, olives, grain, almonds, carob, rosemary; they even fed livestock, though they had little pastureland. They have also produced lime and sold wood since time immemorial. Fishing and maritime occupations served merely as additional sources of income.
