Miroslav’s Gospel (1180 AD)

National Museum in Belgrade has brought to the public light Miroslav's Gospel, the oldest Serbian medieval Manuscript (written in Cyrillic letter) and one of the most important parts of Serbian cultural heritage.

It was copied for Stefan Nemanja's brother Miroslav (1171-1197) by Gligory the Pupil who copied the Gospel. This text is unique because it unites the Eastern style of writing with the Western way of ornamenting where the artist used red, green, yellow, brown and golden colors.

Miroslav’s Gospel is part of the UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register
