The Baška Tablet

The Baška Tablet

One of the oldest stone-carved monuments of the Croatian language contains information about the construction of the Church of St. Lucy and a record of Croatian King Zvonimir’s donation. It represents a significant source for the history of the Croatian people, language and development of the Croatian Glagolitic script. It shows the sovereignty of Croatian King Zvonimir as the donor of land on the island; in addition to its linguistic and literary significance, the tablet is historically significant because of the first mention of the ruler’s name in the folk language.
