This paper examines the development of capitalization in early printed Czech New Testaments. The method employed was the same as in previous studies by Fidlerová, Dittmann and Vladimírová, who examined the majuscules in Old Czech Bibles. The research presented aimed to to confirm and further develop their results on the basis of several separately published New Testaments. The chosen editions were analysed on the lexical level. The percentage of capitals in various categories of substantives, adjectives and numerals was calculated. The increased usage of majuscules in the Melantrich prints was confirmed. Blahoslav’s New Testament was similar to the pre-Melantrich editions.
