The first written sample of the Slovenian language (also first among Slavic languages) are the Freising manuscripts (Brizinski spomeniki), which date back to around 1000 AD. The Catechism is the oldest preserved printed book in Slovene languge. The protestant priest, Primoz Trubar, codified the language.
Now the Slovenian language is spoken by about 2 million speakers and is an one of the official languages of the European Union.
