Ustav may refer to:

  • Typikon, Byzantine liturgical calendar
  • Uncial Cyrillic writing which was used from the 9th century to the 14th-15th centuries as the main Cyrillic type. Then evolutioned into poluustav (semi-uncial, a type still in use for the Church Slavonic publishing), skoropis′ (tachygraphy, a predecessor of Cyrillic cursive) and finally to modern types of Cyrillic script. Since the 19th century, ustav-style Cyrillic fonts are used in academic publishing to reproduce oldest Slavonic texts.
