Gothic Unicode Script

For writing the Gothic language, one uses the Gothic script. It was created in the fourth century AD by Ulfilas (or Wulfila) with the intention of transcribing the Bible. The older Runic alphabet is considered to have been intentionally avoided by Ulfilas for this reason since it was closely associated with pagan beliefs and practises. Additionally, the Gothic nation was probably more easily assimilated into the dominant Greco-Roman society in the Black Sea region thanks to the Greek-based script.
