Slovenia observes Reformation Day

Ljubljana, 31 October - Slovenia is observing Reformation Day on Tuesday to honour the 16th century religious, political and cultural movement that spurred the development of the Slovenian language by producing the first printed book in Slovenian and the first grammar.

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.
