Rise of Literacy



September 2017 – February 2019



As part of this project, Europeana and twelve cultural institutions from ten European countries partnered to showcase the development of literacy on the old continent in the period between the 4th and 20th centuries through digital collections. The National Library of Serbia is presenting the spread of the written word in our region and celebrating the Serbian language through 11 digital collections selected by its project team: “World War I Periodicals”; “Nova Evropa” (magazine); “Handwritten Periodicals”; “Manuscripts of Božidar Knežević”; “Internacionalna revija za umetnost i kulturu Zenit” (an avant-garde magazine for arts and culture); “Yugoslav Avant-Garde”; “Travel Literature of the 19th and 20th Centuries”; “Collected Works of Vuk Stefanović Karadžić”; “Lyricism of Serbian Moderna”; “Incunabula and Paleotypes”; “Diary Notes of World War I Participants”.
