After the death of Kulin Ban, Stjepan Kulinić came to his place (some say that he was his cousin while others claim that he was a son). It is mentioned he had a son Sibislav.
As opposed to his predecessor , he pursued the followers of Bosnian Church. Despite that, it was a period when Bosnian Church had more influences in countries around them, but some heads of Bosnian Church even went to South France where they had relations with other cathar churches. Letters of Pope’s legacy in France mentioned a Bosnian djed (priest) had relations and was in contact with the Cathars in France.
Pope Honorius III in his letter from 2.12.1221 says: “Heretics in Bosnia, they hide in caves like witches and they feed people with open hands, publicly promoting dangerous and heretical teachings.” After this, Pope sent a bishop in Bosnia to fight the heretics.
Pope sent a letter to Hungarian king to help Acontius (bishop’s name) in his fight, but King Andre had problems and conflicts in his country and he didn’t answer the Pope’s call. Archbishop Kalocsai wanted to lead a Crusade in Bosnia, if Pope would let belong to his Church. He negotiated with Ivan Angelus (Byzantinne prince and nephew of Hungarian King) to start a mission on Bosnia, but it didn’t happen. Ivan took 200 silver marks he got from the bishop and ran away.
15.1.1227, Pope says: “Patarens in Bosnia are buoyed up with the failures”. For these reasons, Bosnians decided to throw down Stjepan Kulinić and brought Matej Ninoslav on his place.
