After a basic survey of punctuation practices in Greek, Latin, Cyrillic and canonic Glagolitic texts of the early Middle Ages, the relationship between such inherited practices
and the innovations in oldest Croatian Glagolitic texts of the 12'1' and 13'1’ centuries is also evaluated. The former century is marked by a great lack of regulation, not only among texts, but also within each individual text. Full stops often serve only as mere addition
in unedited spacing between words, and syntactic punctuation levels (one, two or more dots) are frequently confused. In the 13'1' century punctuation mostly presented a means for syntactic divergence and stabilized on two levels: on the lower level (syntag- matic, syntactic) one dot is used, on higher levels two or even several.
