Only 150 years ago the perception of the history of Croatian cultural history was completely different. Much was not known about Glagolitic script, nor about the beginnings of the Croatian language and writing, while the inscribed monuments that were known - lacked scientific evaluation. The national philology, in the reflections of the founding of the Slavic studies of that time, was yet to be established. In the middle of the 19th century, in 1851 to be exact, in other words 150 years ago, in the midst of the professional coming of age of the first modern generation of philologists who will finally assemble a complete picture of the history of the Croatian language and literature, the Baska Tablet was discovered in the church floor of the Abbey Church of St. Lucy in Jurandvor, near Baska on the island of Krk, in the Kvarner Bay.
