The Glagolitic alphabet was created around 860 CE for translation of liturgical texts into the Slavonic language.

There are two versions of the Glagolitic alphabet: the original "round" style and the later "square" style (also known as Croatian Glagolitic). The round style was used in the Unicode charts for all letters except for the ones that existed only in the square style.

A round Glagolitic font may or may not include the square-only letters. Likewise a square font may or may not include the round-only letters.
