Summary/Abstract: On the basis of some new archive data the author indicates a connection and activity in social and cultural area of glagolitic priests at the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 16th centuries. The author, on the basis of these new-discovered documents in clear light describes the life of printers: Gašpar Turčić, Tomas Katridarić and Blaž Baromić. There is a large possibility that Franciscan glagolitic brothers, first of all lesser known Fra Stjepan Belić, the first officially recognised old Slavic language teacher at the end of the Middle Ages, were included in Senj glagolitic cultural circle.
