Croatian term or phrase: ukrstila pera i dlijeta
Ipak, neće biti naodmet ako letimično “zavirimo“ u razdoblje prije II svjetskog rata kada su se ukrstila pera i dlijeta, slavili jubileji, gradili i dogradili velebni hramovi zadivljujućom zauzetošću sve braće.

the time of intellectual and artistic endeavours


Explanation:
Rekao bih da "pero" ovdje simbolizira intelektualni, a "dlijeto" umjetnički rad (iako bi se dlijeto možda moglo uzeti i kao simbol graditeljstva, ono se spominje dalje u rečenici kao zasebno poduzeće pa to značenje možemo isključiti).

"...a cursory glimpse of the pre-WW2 period, the time of intellectual and artistic endeavours, great jubilees..."
