Early Albanian Bible Translations

in Todhri Script

Albanian Studies, Vol. 30

ISBN 978-15397033334 Centre for Albanian Studies, London 2016 162 pp. The copybooks with Albanian bible translation in Todhri script that the Austrian consul, Johann Georg von Hahn, came across during his travels through Albania in the mid-nineteenth century were long regarded as lost. Their discovery in the Austrian National Library, after a century and a half of oblivion, could rightly be described as a sensation for Albanian studies. These little copybooks have previously never been transcribed or translated. Indeed they have probably not been read and used since the nineteenth century. Todhri script was an original Albanian alphabet invented and used in central Albania in the 18th century. The last person to write in Todhri script is said to have died in the 1930s.
