The second Novi Breviary is a large codex of 500 folios. The greater part of it was transcribed by Priest Martinac from the district of Lapac in Grobnic, one of the free medieval Vinodol communes. In his colophons he mentions 1493, 1494 and 1495 as the years in which the codex was written and finished. It was inscribed for the Pauline monastery and the Church of St. Mary on Osap, a little hill outside the walls of Novi Vinodol. The Pauline monks in the glagolitic areas celebrated the Old Slav services from glagolitic liturgical books. The script, particularly that of Priest Martinac is neat and legible liturgical script in square Croatioan glagolitic as was use in the 14 and 15 centuries. In lagiage the codex is the Croation redaction of Church Slav. The texts date from the 10th to the 15th centuries, and old and new linguistic elements are intermixed. The breviary retains entire the breviary of the Roman Curia distinguished by lessons of considerable length and detailed descriptions of the offices in the rubrics.
