Zatram bible

A page from the bible

The Zatram Bible is a very old bible found in the ruins of Zatram in Cape Cross Parish. This book dates to the late 13th century and was written in the Brezondian Language, likely by the local priest. The book has beautiful images and colors, and experts estimate it took over a year to write. The bible was found in the 15th century among the ruins of Zatram (after it had been destroyed) and was owned by a merchant, Groteman, and his family until 1880 when it was donated to the State Museum.

This bible is extremely significant for being the oldest surviving document in Barzuna, and one of the first to be written in Roman script rather than Arabic writing. In 1990 the bible was insured with Santander Brunant for €100,000.
