Slavic manuscripts at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Bavarian State Library) - Cod.slav.

The codices slavici (Cod.slav. 1-110) collection comprises over 120 Slavic manuscripts from the 14th to 20th centuries. The proportion of liturgical manuscripts is particularly high. Languages such as Russian Church Slavonic, Serbian Church Slavonic, Russian, Bulgarian, Polish and Czech are represented here. The oldest illuminated "Serbian Psalter" from the late 14th century (Cod.slav. 4), for example, is particularly significant.

One of the outstanding Slavic texts in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek is contained in a predominantly Latin manuscript: the texts from the 10th century, known as "Freisinger Denkmäler" (Freising Monuments) (Clm 6426) and intended for the mission, not only represent by far the earliest evidence of Slovenian, but also of a Slavic language in Latin script.

The majority of Slavic manuscripts come from the Munich and Mannheim court libraries and the Polling monastery library.
