The article is an overview of the position and role of Croatian Glagolitism in the medieval European cultural sphere. First, the author reviews the roots of the Croatian-Glagolitic literature based on Cyrillo-Methodian foundations and the routes by which Church Slavonic texts made their way to Croatia. After that, he describes the status of the Croatian Church Slavonic literature among the Slavic medieval cultures, its position between the European West and East and its mediating role as a transmitter of Western-European texts translated from Latin or Italian to other Slavic literatures. Finally, he outlines shortly the so-called Emmaus episode, i.e. the activity of the Croatian Glagolites among Western Slavs in the 14th and the 15th centuries, as well as the echoes of the Croatian Glagolitism in Western European countries in the Renaissance period.
