Historical Examples of glagolitic
The first printed Slavonic work was set in Glagolitic letters.
The Glagolitic literature was therefore almost exclusively limited to copies of the productions of their Cyrillic brethren.
The Glagolitic letters had, however, the precedence of the Cyrillic alphabet, in respect to printing.
In our day, this city possesses the only Glagolitic printing office in existence.
The Latin alphabet probably came into use without any particular pains, long before the introduction of the Glagolitic letters.
- of, relating to, or denoting a Slavic alphabet whose invention is attributed to Saint Cyril, preserved only in certain Roman Catholic liturgical books found in Dalmatia
