Reformers Dalmatin and Bohorič honoured with plaques in Germany

Leipzig, 17 March - Two memorial plaques were unveiled in Wittenberg, Germany, on Friday honouring two Slovenian greats from the Reformation period who provided a basis for the Slovenian written language. Jurij Dalmatin translated the entire Bible and Adam Bohorič wrote the first Slovenian grammar book. Both were published in 1584 in Wittenberg.

A copy of the Bible translated by Jurij Dalmatin (1547-1589) into Slovenian, and published in 1584, exhibited at a 2017 exhibition at the National and University Library in Ljubljana.
