The Borgiano Illirico 6 and 5

The Borgiano Illirico 6 and 5 – Glagolitic manuscript books originating from Gacka. Medieval Glagolitic literacy in the regions of ​​Gacka, Lika and Krbava was remarkably widespread and important. Numerous missals, breviaries, and miscellanies, as well as a number of other secular writings, originated as manuscripts written in either Croatian or the Croatian recension of Old Church Slavonic. Unfortunately, none of the aforementioned books were preserved in the area where they originated, but were taken away to the Littoral, Krk or Istria. The reason for this were the unstable times of war and the increasing penetration of the Ottomans into the west. Borgiano Illirico 6 is a breviary written in the vicinity of Dabar in 1387, which is kept in the Vatican Apostolic Library. The writer Fabian writes, "A tada biše knez Anž gospodin Krku i Gacki i Senju i veće" ("Count Anž [Ivan Frankopan] was then the Lord of Krk and Gacka and Senj and many more.") Borgiano Illirico 5 is a breviary completed in 1379. It is also kept in the Vatican Apostolic Library. The last page contains a note saying that the breviary got into the hands of the Turks through negligence of a certain priest by the name of Radoš, and that the villagers were raising ransom money to bring the breviary back. The transcript of the comment on the raising of money for the release of the breviary was placed in the foundations of the new building of the National and University Library in Zagreb. The author of the initials is sculptor Marčelo Starčić from Kanfanar, Croatia.


BorgioIllirico 6. i 5. - glagoljske rukopisne knjige koje potječu iz Gacke. Srednjevjekovna glagoljska pismenost na području Gacke, Like i Krbave je bila izuzetno velika i značajna. Rukopisno su na hrvatskom ili staroslavenskom jeziku hrvatske redakcije nastali brojni misali, brevijari i zbornici te niz drugih svjetovnih zapisa. Nažalost, niti jedna od spomenuti knjiga nije sačuvana na prostoru nastanka već su knjige odnošene prema Primorju, Krku i Istri. Razlog su bila nestabilna ratna vremena i nadiranje Osmanlija sve više na zapad.BorgoIllirico 6 je brevijar napisan 1387. g. u okolici Dabra, pohranjen je u Apostolskoj knjižnici u Vatikanu. Pisac Fabijan zapisuje: 'A tada biše knez Anž (Ivan Frankopan) gospodin Krku i Gacki i Senju i veće'. BorgioIllirico 5 je brevijar dovršen 1379. g. Pohranjen je također u Apostolskoj knjižnici u Vatikanu. Na zadnjem je listu zapisano kako je nepažnjom nekog popa Radoša ovaj brevijar dopao u ruke Turcima te da su žitelji skupljali otkupninu kako bi ga vratili natrag. Prijepis zapisa o skupljanju sredstava za otkup ovoga brevijara stavljen je u temelje nove zgrade Nacionalne i sveučilišne knjižnice u Zagrebu.Autor inicijala je kipar Marčelo Starčić iz Kanfanara.;
