ecce caelum Spalatensis

This spectacular Split sky was captured on 8th November, 2011, showing it through the atmosphere of Easter,

which falls right on 8th April, 2012.

I think that with this particular scene is doing well some special kind of music: pascal Glagolitic medieval church a cappella singing.

Although at first with Vatican's reluctance, Glagolitism managed to preserve and develop the Croatian language.

The Croats using the Glagolitic alphabet were the only nation in Europe who was given a special permission (by

Pope Innocent IV, 1248) to use their language and the Croatian Glagolitic script in their liturgy. All other nations have finally

received permission from the Holy See for this, also - but only after more than 700 years later. Even until the

second half of the 20th century (1965) all the others had to serve the church ceremonies

only in the Latin language,

which many of the faithful did not even understand. It is interesting that, besides using the standard Croatian language,

the Glagolitic liturgy is used in some Croatian churches even today.
