9th to 11th centuries: the dominance of Church Slavonic, first literary language of all Slavs, based on a south Macedonian dialect. In time, variants of Church Slavonic emerge (Croatian, Russian, Czech, Serbian, Bulgarian), as a result of intrusion of the vernacular. First Croatian script, Glagolitic, was probably invented by missionaries from Thessalonica Cyril and Methodius (ca. 850), whose disciples, expelled from Moravia (contemporary Slovakia and Czech Republic), settled in Croatian lands. The originally “round” form of Glagolitic script soon becomes angular- the distinct feature of Croatian Glagolitic. Historicallly, the most important monument of early Croatian literacy is the Baška tablet (ca. 1100).
