In Croatian literature, as in others European literatures, we find works that belong to the misogynism trend. The article proposes a new way of reading an anonymous Croatian poem which opened the misogynist trend in this literature. The base of interpretation are categories from history of theology of spirituality: an authorian spirituality and non-authorian spirituality which are helpful to find and show in the language of misogyny, a hidden allegory of the inner man who is trying to rationalize carnality and sensuality on the way to God.
