Glagolitic script



The Bishop of Nin, one of the most prominent bishops of Nin was a strong advocate of the old folk alphabet, glagolitic and the old Slavonic language. The oldest literary and historical monuments of this region were written in glagolitic script which was obvious evidence of ancient culture and the awereness of national identity and patriotism. The historian Kerubin Šegvić wrote about this in 1925: „Among the cultural advantages which the Croatian people can take pride in is the fact that they have their own national script. Every nation upon being baptised and entering Christianity would immediately receive the Holy Books translated into their language along with the clergy who used it. When they were made Christian and gave a written promise to the Roman Pope to be at peace with the surrounding nations, the Croats were supposed to get, and got, holy liturgical books, their own clergy and their own Bishop of Nin in the 9th - 10th century. Glagolitic is the script in which our oldest literary and historical monuments were written. The Croats proudly point their finger to these monuments which are evidence of their ancient culture and resistant strength.“

Glagolitic records from the 20th century can be seen in Nin on the monument of Duke Branimir and on the fountain cover in front of the Church of St Anselm (Asel).
