Ljubljana Codex named a UNESCO “Memory of the World”

codex.jpgUNESCO has included the sacred document Codex Suprasliensis, held in part by Slovenia’s National and University Library, to its worldwide register of valuable archive holdings.

Created in Bulgaria in the 11th century, the document is now shared by the national libraries of Slovenia, Poland and Russia. A rare surviving example of the Old Church Slavonic language, the codex is Slovenia’s first entry on the “Memory of the World” list.
