Bratko's Menaion, a collection of liturgical hymn compositions for the entire church year, is a convolute, created during the second quarter of the 13th century (between 1234 and 1243) and the first half of the 14th century. The manuscript is named after the scribe of the first part of the book dated to the 13th century - presbyter Bratko. More than ten scribal hands were recognised in the copy, and the names of two more copyists - Nikola and Radoslav - were recorded. The illumination of the manuscript consists of several intertwined headpieces and small initials. The manuscript is kept in the National Library of Serbia in Belgrade (Narodna biblioteka Srbije Rs 647). It was added to the old collection of manuscripts of the previous National Library in Belgrade (No. 212), where it arrived as a gift from Southern Serbia (from Banjane, today in the Republic of North Macedonia).

|National Library of Serbia in Belgrade||Group||The National Library of Serbia (Народна библиотека Србије, Narodna biblioteka Srbije) is located in the capital city of Belgrade. It is the biggest library and oldest institution in Serbia. In 1832, the library was established by bookbinder Gligorije Vozarović in his bookstore, and its first collection consisted of gifts of publisher and bookseller Vozarović and other Serbian cultural figures. On 28 February 1832, Dimitrije Davidović sent a letter on the organization of the library to Miloš Obrenović. In November of the same year, Prince Miloš ordered that one copy of each printed book be made available to the library. Nowadays, the National Library of Serbia is a modern national library. Its goals are: incorporation into the world's information flows, recognition within the world's family of national libraries, as well as becoming an information resource and drive for the development of Serbian society.|
