Gothic language


Welcome to Gutiska Razda, a website dedicated to the Gothic language!

Here you’ll be able to find videos, audio material, translations into Gothic, papers about Gothic, the Skeireins and much more.
The idea came into existence because there was no real website dedicated completely to the Gothic language yet, where as this exists for several other languages.

Gothic was an East-Germanic language spoken by the Visigoths and Ostrogoths. It was recorded by bishop Wulfila (little wolf) in early medieval times, as he wanted to spread the message of christianity among the Goths, most of them didn’t know Latin or Greek, so they needed a Bible in their own language which fortunately persisted to exist up to today.
Wulfila is thought to have had a Greek mother and a Visigothic father, which is why he could speak both languages.
