"Oktoih", the Book of Psalms, was printed in 1494 in the Crnojevic printing press in Cetinje. In the Orthodox Church, the Oktoih is a book of liturgical hymns for singing in eight parts. The Crnojevic printing press was the first in southeastern Europe. It operated between 1493 and 1496. Five books printed in this printshop were preserved: Oktoih Prvoglasnik, Oktoih Petoglasnik, Psaltir, Trebnik (Molitvenik) and Cvetni Triod (Cevtverojevadjelje). These books were the first books printed in Cyrillic among the southern Slavs.
