In Belarus Psalter (along with the ABC book and the book of Hours) was often used to teach reading and writing not only to clergy, but to laity as well. It had a tremendous impact on ancient writing, including the writings of Cyril Turauski who often refers to Psalms and different expressions from the Psalter.
