This is a beautiful Macedonian New Testament. The Macedonian alphabet (Macedonian: Македонска азбука, Makedonska azbuka) is an adaptation of the Cyrillic alphabet used to write the modern Macedonian language. Like all Cyrillic alphabets, the Macedonian alphabet is principally derived from the Cyrillic alphabet. The Macedonian alphabet was standardized in 1944 by a committee formed in the Socialist Republic of Macedonia (then part of the federation of Yugoslavia) after the liberation of Vardar Macedonia (the area of the Republic of Macedonia) from the Nazis in World War II. The alphabet was similar to, and influenced by, the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet, and used the same phonemic principles employed by Vuk Karadžić in his development of the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet. It was officially adopted by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia on May 16, 1945. Before standardization of the Macedonian alphabet, the language had been written using the Cyrillic alphabet. Its adaptations and/or characters may have been influenced by Bulgarian, Early Cyrillic or Serbian alphabets, depending on the writer.
