Hello my Cute Ladies,
As many of you know (who followed me before) I was complaining during the summer period about the weird summer weather ( a lot of rain and clouds).
But during the October we had really nice sunny weather that allowed people to swimm, sunbath, walk and so on.
One of those great weekends I spent again in island Krk (the closest to my city). This time I visited Jurandvor. Why? The reason was to see the replica of Baska tablet in small and cute St Lucy church.
In 1851, a young priest from Baska, Petar Dorcic found a large stone tablet inscribed with Glagolitic symbols in the soil of the early Romanic church of St. Lucy in Jurandvor, near Baska. The text written on the tablet was of great interest for scientists of the period. It became an important source of information regarding the development of the Croatian Glagolitic alphabet as well as the Croatian language and culture. It proved the existence of the Croatian state fromits earliest days; mentioning the name of the Croatian king, Zvonimir and marks the northern borders of his kingdom on the island of Krk.
The text on the tablet was partly read in 1865 and completely in 1875. It was believed that the tablet included secret data, but it was later established that the tablet was the certification of the donation of land which king Zvonimir donated to the Benedictine monastery of Saint Lucy. The tablet lists the witnesses of that deed of donation and describes the time in which the donation took place. It can be established from that part of the text that the tablet dates back to 1100. In 1934, the tablet was, transferred to the Academy of Science and Art in Zagreb where it still stands today. A copy of it is also exhibited in the church of St. Lucy. The church and the partly renewed monastery complex today attracts many visitors.
Kiss to all of you,
