Illuminated Codices from the Library of the Bratislava Chapter House
Documentary heritage submitted by Slovakia and recommended for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 1997.
The fate of Slovakia's documentary heritage has been shaped over the centuries by a number of political, cultural and social phenomena. The historical territory of Slovakia itself has been a permanent meeting ground of political interests and cultural influences from the whole of Europe. The Antiphonaries of Bratislava belong to the most significant and most representative monuments of the book culture in Bratislava and Central Europe.
