Nicholas of Modru? (Croatian: Nikola Modru?ki/Kotarski, c. 1427 – 1480), born in Boka Kotorska, was a bishop of Modru? in Lika, the Pope's representative at the courts of King Stephen Toma?evi? of Bosnia and King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary (1463-1464). His huge library was left to the newly founded Vatican library (founded by Pope Sixtus IV). In 1478/79, he wrote a treatise in defence of the Glagolitic alphabet which he sent from Rome to the Modru? bishopric. It is regarded to be the first polemic treatise in the history of Croatian literature, and it was written in the Glagolitic Script. Buried in the church of Santa Maria del Popolo in Rome.
