The Legend of Saint Mark
In the past, a local monastery held an evangelistary considered by many as being written by Saint Mark in person around the mid-1st century AD. The book was known as the Evangelistary of the Princes, as it was an object of worship for princes and emperors, who signed it as a confirmation of their faith. The monastery no longer exists and the manuscript is dispersed between Venice (Saint Mark's Basilica), Prague (St. Vitus Cathedral) and Cividale del Friuli (Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, few kilometers away from Aquileia). The legend about Saint Mark, however, is still deeply rooted in Aquileia.
