The main monument of Trani is the Cathedral, dedicated to St. Nicholas the Pilgrim, a Greek assassinated at Trani in 1094 and canonized by Urban II. It lies on a raised open site near the sea, and was consecrated, before its completion, in 1143. It is a basilica with three apses, built in the characteristic white local limestone.

The Cathedral of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Zagreb (Croatia)

The Zagreb Cathedral is the most monumental and the most impressive Gothic-style sacral building southeast of the Alps. Its ground plan, with slender cross-ribbed arches within three polygonal apses with narrow windows, resembles French architectural pattern (ex. the one in Troyes); the details of its subsequently added naves (of equal height) correspond to the building patterns of modern German architecture; imaginative sculptures, on the other hand, reflect influence of Czech schools. All this indicates not only early introducation of Gothic style to Croatia's north and internationalization of art, but also the importance of Zagreb Bishopric and the status and power of its bishops in those days. From the very beginning, the cathedral was dedicated to the Blessed Virgin mary, i.e. to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Feast of the Assumption). Although Hungarian King St. Stephen is always mentioned as the primary patron-saint, he is actually the second one.










Glagoljica the Slavic alphabet created the 9th c, which is retained in Croatian regions until 19 Even in the early 16th century century is increasingly suppressed Latin. The author of this letter is Cyril, a Byzantine monk from Salonica. Cyril (real name Konstantin) based on the language of the Macedonian Slavs surrounding Salonika together a customized script and translating sacred books.
