Here is another fact about my nation, Croatia:
Throughout centuries in Croatia one of the official writing systems was the Glagolitic script, which was invented in the 9th century by the same two men who invented the Cyrillic script (St. Cyril and St. Methodius). In some jurisdictions, it was used as an official script until the early 20th century.
Ever since the East–West Schism of 1054, Croatia has been a Roman Catholic nation. The Roman Catholic liturgy used to be conducted in the Latin language, but in addition to Latin, Croatia was the only Roman Catholic nation (or one of the very few, I know of none other) that had a Papal exemption to conduct the Mass in a language other than Latin, namely Church Slavonic (similar to the Orthodox Churches). The liturgical texts in Church Slavonic were written using the Glagolitic script in Croatia, unlike Cyrillic which was used in Orthodox Churches. The use of Glagolitic script in Roman Catholic liturgy in Croatia officially stopped after the Vatican II in 1965.
Here is an example of a book written in Glagolitic:
Here is an example of official documents in Glagolitic (cursive):
The first printed book in Croatia was in Glagolitic (22nd February, 1483).
In the video game series Witcher, the Glagolitic script is used for some inscriptions:
This image literally says: “Kingfisher Inn” (Glagolitic is not very suitable for writing English, since it lacks letters for Q, W, Y, X, J and contains many other letters which do not exist in English). It would be more correct to write it like this: ⰽⰻⱀⰳⱇⰻⱎⰵⱃ ⰻⱀ.
Even though Glagolitic is taught to young students in Croatia, it is not used any more (except for souvenirs for tourists), so almost nobody here knows how to read it. I am one of few people in Croatia who can fluently read and write Glagolitic, even the cursive variant.
