The Gospel of Cividale (Italian: Evangelario di Cividale, Slovene: čedadski evangelij, čedajski evangelij or štivanski evangelij, Croatian: čedadski evanđelistar), at first named the Codex of Aquileia (Latin: codex aquileiensis, codex foroiulensis, Slovene: Oglejski kodeks), is a medieval Latin transcript of the Gospel of Mark, written on parchment. It is named after Cividale del Friuli, a town in Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Northern Italy) where it is kept. It contains about 1500 Slavic and German names of pilgrims to the monastery of San Giovanni di Duino (Štivan), written in the second half of the 9th and the first half of the 10th century. The monastery was a property of the Patriarchate of Aquileia.

The Gospel contains the first known Croatian autographs in a Latin text.[1]

The Latin alphabet [...] was first used to render Croatian onymic material in Latin texts (first in the famous Evangelario di Cividale with Croatian autographs from the 8th century onwards; cf. Cronia 1953b) and then for interlinear glosses, again in Latin texts.[22]CS1 maint: Uses authors parameter (link)
