Kyiv Missal [Київські листки; Kyivski lystky]. One of the oldest Slavic literary monuments, written in the Glagolitic alphabet, consisting of seven parchment sheets of undetermined origin. In 1872 it was deposited in the library of the Kyiv Theological Academy (hence its name). The missal was published by Izmail Sreznevsky in 1874. Its language has been studied by such scholars as Mykola Hrunsky and George Yurii Shevelov. Today the document is preserved in the National Library of Ukraine.
