Old Permic Unicode Script

The Old Permic script was devised in the 14th century by Russian missionary Stefan of Perm and was used to write the Uralic languages Komi and Komi-Permyak. Its model was based on the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets but many of the glyphs were taken from the “Tamga signs”, used in indigenous Komi religious practices; in this way Stefan made a link between traditional signs, which had much to do with the self-identity of the Komi, and Christian traditions. Stefan translated Russian and Greek liturgical and biblical texts into Komi.
