On the Roots of Church Slavonic Literature in the Slavonic Monastery in Prague
Čermák, Václav
The article deals with the issue of Czech-Croatian cultural history and literary contacts which intensified after the foundation of the Slavonic Monastery in Prague in the mid-14th century. Greatest attention is paid to written sources for Church Slavonic and Czech Glagolitic literature that originated in the 2nd half of the 14th century and early 15th century which were used in this monastery. At first, the author presents the development specifications of Church Slavonic literature in Croatia and points out the historic circumstances which in the northern areas of the Croatian coast enabled the development of Church Slavonic written in the Glagolitic script for Roman liturgy. Attention is also paid to the development of respect for Bohemian saints in Latin and Croatian Glagolitic liturgical sources which in most cases gives evidence of their cult's existence in Croatia prior to the 14th century. The author of the study briefly reminds readers about the individual liturgical booklets of Croatian Glagolitic origin which were used for Slavonic liturgy not only in Croatia but also in the Slavonic Monastery in Prague.
