The study maps the life and work of the Croatian Juraj Krizanic (1617/1618-1683), his opinions - historiosophy, the concept of human nature and the state, his Slavism, his view of Russia and its future and his ideas about economic reforms and Russian foreign policy. Krizanic's projects were based on his belief that Russia, in its nature and due to its historical and spiritual traditions, is primarily a country of Slavs. Contrary to later Pan-slavists, Krizanic did not consider Russia a country that would unify all Slavic nations. Still, he strongly believed that a future reformed and strong Russia led by a czar would help smaller and subjugated Slavic nations restore their own statehood as well as their former position. In the past, Krizanic was presented as the precursor of Slavophiles or even the founder of the idea of All-Slavism, or a representative of ecumenism. Historians specializing in Russian history have considered him an excellent expert and glossarist of conditions in 17th-century Russia; linguists have taken note of his grammar of a joint Slavic language.
