We're children from all around the world and we all love books. We're joined by a project, where we discover the world of books and share stories with young readers from other countries. Books made us friends and our plan is to bring some books to life :)

Wroclaw's dwarfs

Wroclaw's dwarfs - this is the name of 115 dwarf figures placed all over Wroclaw - the capital city of our province. They have became without any doubts a city attraction - people organise special trips on dwarf's track. There are also special pamphlets for tourists who want to tour the city and find all the dwarfs.

They are the Wroclaw's dwarfs who have invited their french cousins to Poland. They are visiting us soon, but now let's see the gallery of the most interesting dwarfs.



Do you like them? We love them.

OUR BOOK

One week left to finish our book ...

After deciding what Slovenian places American princess will visit when being here, we devided into several groups of three and each group made up a story about adventures the princess went through in every place.

Then we illustrated every story and that was it :)

24 May -The day of Bulgarian alphabet,literacy and culture












GLAGOLITZA

In the initial period the Slavs knew two alphabets - Cirilitza and Glagolitza. In the beginning precisely the Glagolican letters are called "Cyril`s letters". In the science it is already known that Constantine - Cyril Philosopher is the creator of the Glagolitza. When in 862 in Constantinople delegates of the Moravian king Rostislav come, the brothers from Solon are already ready to educate the Slavs on their own language. Still through their common stay in the monastery Polihron in 885 they thing about the creation of graphic system which properly to reflect the speciality of the Slavonic language, which they know - the Old-Bulgarian language. Most probably the works for the creation of the Glagolitza have begun long time before the mission in Moravia and it is result from the belief of the two brothers that every nation has got right to have its own culture and own language. This position concurs a little bit with the interests of Byzantium, which wants to subdue the Slavs in religious attitude.

The Glagolitza is an original graphical system, which contains 38 letters. It reflects precisely the sound speciality of the Old - Bulgarian language. The symbols: "Ж, Ч, Ш, Ъ" and the two nasal sounds, which it contains are missing in the Latin and Greek alphabets. This shows that it is close related with the peculiarity of the Slavonic language.

In looking for the prototype of the Glagolitza it borns the one of the most interesting scientific hypothesizes - that in its base there are three elements with symbolical meaning - cross, circle /symbol of the universe/ and triangle /symbol of the Holly Trinity/. These refine interweaving of the symbols of the Christianity with the philological knowledge was not difficult for Constantine - Cyril Philosopher, the student of Lyv Mathematician and patriarch Fotiy. The peculiar "sanctity" of the Glagolitza is contained in the first of the letters - A, which is depicted as a cross.

The Glagolitza is used in Panonia, Moravia, Croatia, Russian and of course in Bulgaria. With the holly glagolican letters are written the books, which King Boris receives from the Slavonic enlighters. On it books they are written a large number of liturgical books, from which in our days have survived the Gospel of Zograff, the Sinaiski trebnik, the Gospel of Marin, the Gospel of Aseman and other. They are letters of the Glagolitza on one of the internal walls of the circle church (Rotonda) in Preslav.

The fate of the Glagolitza is to be a holly letter - this is seen from its usage in the liturgical books in Croatia and Dalmatian even in 18th century.

CYRILITZA

The Cyrilitza is created in the end of 9th century and it is related with writers of the Preslavian school for bookman. The scientists suggest that it had appeared in historical way. There are no proofs that that it is creation of Constantine - Cyril Philosopher or of Clement Ohritski. It includes 24 letters from the Greek alphabet and some more symbols which are specific for the Old-Bulgarian language. In the science the change of the Glagolitza with Cyrilitza is explained with different reasons - mostly with the new-created practice the Greek letters to be adapted to the Slavonic language, or with the will of King Simeon to bring closer the Slavonic letter with the Greek letter. It is not strike off the list the changing of the Glagolitza to have happened because of administration reasons. The Glagolitza is thought to be a alphabet for the high church letters and books. Some letters from it were with difficult construction and they weren`t written but drowned. When the Glagolitza was forgotten a little bit the bookmans used it for cryptography. It is preserved a manuscript of Cyril made by Gold for king Simeon in which they are written some letters in Glagolitza.

In a few centuries the two alphabets had been used both at the same time but with the time the Cyrilitza had changed the Glagolitza.

Most old famous written memorials on Cyrilitza are the inscription of "chergubilia Mostich" (the middle of 10th century), the inscription of Samuil from 943, the"⌠Bitolski" inscription of King Ivan Vladislav from 1015 - 1016. On Cyrilitza are written and some manuscript from the middle ages like the Savina book, "Suprasalsky sbornik" and other. From Bulgaria the Cyrilitza is moved in Russia and Serbia. The first cyrilic manuscripts in Serbia are dated in the second half of 7th century. As a church and bureau alphabet the Cyrilitza is used in Walachia and Moldova from the end of the 14th century to the middle of 19th century.
