Reformation Day is a public holiday in Slovenia. It's dedicated to the Reformation and Protestant movement which gave the first printed book in Slovenian language.

In 1550 Primož Trubar, a Protestant priest, published his Abecedarium spelling book and Catechism in Slovenian language. The day has been observed as a bank holiday since 1992. The main ceremony ahead of the event was held yesterday in Kranj.

On the eve of the holiday another one of Trubar's most important works was revealed. The Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts presented pictures of a preserved copy of Primož Trubar’s "Cerkovna ordninga". It was sent by German experts and discovered in a library south of Hannover. It was released in 1564 in Tübingen and will be on display next year in June. Before it was believed that only one copy remained intact in the Vatican.
