Dabarski brevijar

Dabarski brevijar- važna je rukopisna knjiga nesporno domicilna podrijetla, iz regije Gacke, iz Dabra, datirana u 1486. godinu. U to vrijeme Dabar je bio očito glagoljaško žarište, i BorgoIllirico 6. i 5. također su vezani za sam Dabar. Dabarski brevijar je pisan na samome kraju rukopisanja knjiga, već za koje desetljeće tiskarska preša će preuzeti potpuni primat. Da je brevijar potječe iz Dabra svjedoči rukopisnom glagoljicom zabilježeno: - 'A to pisah' ja pop' Stipan' ta račun' zgoru dogovoran' budući z brat'jom mojom' Mikulom' Beroićem' i Ivanom' Tom'šićem' a ti od plemena Dabran' i Zagorac' a pri tom' biše i veće brat'e naše a va to doba bihu velike teškoće i nevole od Turak' a ta br(vi)jal' ta e crikv'ce s(ve)toga Kuz'me i Dom'jana v Dab'ri'. Ovaj brevijar ima prelijepih inicijala (najpoznatije je slovo V), a nalazi se pohranjen u HAZU-u. Pripada glagoljskima srednjovjekovnim kodeksima. Motiv inicijala izradio kipar Marčelo Starčić iz Kanfanara.;


The Dabar Breviary – An important manuscript book of undisputed domestic origin, from the region of Gacka, from Dabar, dated to 1486. At that time, Dabar was obviously a Glagolitic hotspot, and Borgiano Illirico 6 and 5 were also connected to this locality. The Dabar Breviary was written at the very end of the period of handwritten books; within a couple of decades, the printing press took over from the laborious handwriting. The breviary originates from Dabar, as can be seen in the following quote written in the Glagolitic script, "And this was written by me, priest Stipan, and the costs were agreed upon with my brethren Nikolaus Beroić and Ivan Tomšić, and they are of the tribes of the Dabrans and Zagoracs, and there were many more of our brethren, and this was a time of great difficulty and hardship because of the Turks, and this breviary at the Church of St Cosmas and Damian at Dabar." The breviary, which is decorated with numerous beautiful initials (the best known is the letter V), is kept in the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts as one of the most important medieval Glagolitic codices. The motif of the initial was created by sculptor Marčelo Starčić from Kanfanar, Croatia.
