The author analyzes their three joint studies from 1955–1956. These studies first introduced into academic use the most comprehensive medieval copy of the so-called <em>Italian legend</em> discovered to date. They also explored its links to the literary activity of Leo of Ostia (1046–1115). Through P.Meyvaert’s fortuitous discovery, the two scholars proved that only the second redaction of the <em>Italian Legend</em> has survived. As a result of their research, they narrowed down the chronological limits of the appearance of its first redaction, compiled by Johannes Hymmonides and Gauderic of Velletri. They studied the manuscript tradition (of the <em>Italian Legend</em>) and proved that the reference to the episcopal rank of St Cyril and St Methodius is a late interpolation in the text. They established what influence Leo of Ostia ‘s redaction of the <em>Italian Legend</em> exerted on the literary production in the Benedictine monastery of San Clemente a Casauria in the last quarter of the 12th century and on some legendaries containing abridged <em>legendae novae</em> of the 13th and 14th centuries. P. Meyvaert and P. Devos also attempted to clarify the place of the so-called <em>Moravian legend</em> in the nexus of Latin Cyrillo-Methodian legends of the Bohemian lands.</p> <p>The paper discusses the contributions of Meyvaert and Devos from the perspective of the development of Cyrillo-Methodian studies. It analyses the main approaches used for the successful solutions to age-old issues and the hypotheses that provoked debate with Jaroslav Ludvikovský.</p> 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/765 Photocopies of Lost Manuscript Copies of the Prologue Vita of Methodius, Bishop of Great Moravia, in the Scientific Archive of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences 2023-07-26T19:04:06+02:00 Boyka Mircheva mircheva.boyka@gmail.com <p>The paper begins with the historical facts related to the collection of Cyrillo-Methodian sources’ photocopies in the Scientific Archive of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. It aims at identifying the original manuscript copies of some Prologue Vitaе of Cyril and Methodius whose photocopies were preserved in this archive, at finding out their present location, and at checking the available data about them. Three such manuscripts are located in the National Scientific Library of Ukraine in L’viv, one in the Shevchenko Scientific Society and another one in the holdings of the L’viv National Library. The originals of eight other photocopies, however, have not been located and most probably no longer exist, which makes these photocopies the only evidence at present and thus a precious part of the Slavonic Cyrillo-Methodian heritage. The author of the article presents all the available information about them and publishes the transcripts of three of these photocopies.</p> 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/766 The Cultural and Historical Legacy of Acad. Stefan Mladenov 2023-07-26T19:07:04+02:00 Iva Trifonova iva.workpost@gmail.com <p>The article is dedicated to the life and professional path of Acad. Stefan Mladenov as commemoration of the 60th anniversary of his death. It summarizes the cultural and historical dimensions of his research, which has remained eternal in time. The emphasis is placed on his personal documents kept at the Scientific Archive of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (SA-BAS). They are described and analyzed in historical and research perspectives with a focun on those that are directly related to the Bulgarian-Polish scientific relations in the first half of the 20th century. A list of the selected studies dedicated to the memory of Acad. Mladenov can be found after the article.</p> 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/767 Some Remarks about the Cyrillo-Methodian Bibliography in Bulgaria and its Electronic Version 2023-07-26T19:10:19+02:00 Nely Gancheva nelly_vasileva@abv.bg <p>The article presents the work in Bulgaria on the preparation and publication of the Cyrillo-Methodian bibliography. It has been highlighted that since 1980 the Cyrillo-Methodian Research Centrе at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences has been the institution responsible at international level for the collection, processing and publishing of the Cyrillo-Methodian Bibliography. The stages of automation of the bibliography are traced and the need to convert the records from the bibliographic database to a machine-readable format for data exchange is justified. The main prospects for the development of the electronic Cyrillo-Methodian Bibliography are outlined as follows: full-text presentation of the publications described therein; application of bibliographic citation measurement software; constructing an application in which users can add bibliographic records and electronic resources in the field of Cyrillo-Methodian studies.</p> 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/768 The Slavonic Manuscript Heritage of the Zograf Monastery on Mount Athos ‒ Past and Present 2023-07-26T19:22:09+02:00 Andrey Bobev andreybobev@yahoo.com <p>The literary treasures of the Holy Monastery of St. George the Zograf (widely known as Zograf Monastery) on Mount Athos, Greece, have attracted the scholarly attention for almost two centuries now. Built back in the X c., the Monastery has been inhabited by Slavic monks, predominantly Bulgarian in origin, for a millennium. Numerous medieval books have been taken by different visitors from the Monastery’s Library and “migrated”, mainly to the lands of the former Russian Empire. Despite that, due to the relative difficulties in terms of access, the Library and its manuscripts have neither seen proper cataloguing so far, nor have been studied to a sufficient extent. The present article makes an overview of several topics. First, it sketches the history of cataloguing attempts made for Zograf’s Library since XIX c. to contemporary undertakings. Second, it describes the current state of the Library’s repertoire, which is by far wider than expected until recently, and the formation of several teams with different fields of research in order to cover the whole range of thousands of hand-written books and documents spanning all over ten centuries. Third, the article traces the stages of the decade lasting (and still continuing) process of digitalization of the Zograf’s literary heritage and the attempts of providing its accessibility to the scholars – at least for its most valuable pieces, if not in total.</p> 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/769 Materials to the catalogue description of manuscripts excerpted for Bibliotheca Homiletica Balcano-Slavica. III. Triodion Panegyrikon from Hilandar Monastery N 390 2023-07-26T19:25:37+02:00 Tsvetomira Danova cvetomira_danova@abv.bg <p>This article is the third part of a series designed as a precursor of the forthcoming catalogue Bibliotheca Homiletica Balcano-Slavica. The series presents hitherto undescribed, unknown, or little known codices, all of which need some additional clarification of the information related to them. The present article introduces the hitherto undescribed Codex N 390 from the collection of the Hilandar Monastery in Mount Athos. The aim is to provide a complete description of the content of the manuscript, and also to give the basic and most important information about every one of the works included. Thе detailed description of the manuscript is of great importance for the completion of the catalogue Bibliotheca Homiletica Balcano-Slavica, and it will bring to the scholarly attention many valuable, unknown, or little known, mostly translated, works, enhancing our understanding of the reception of Byzantine rhetoric in the South Slavonic Medieval milieu.</p> 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/774 Strony tytułowe 2023-09-29T22:19:22+02:00 Michał Krupa m.krupa@uw.edu.pl 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/763 Preface 2023-07-26T18:52:29+02:00 Maya Ivanova maya.devmo@gmail.com 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/775 Spis treści 2023-09-29T22:39:39+02:00 Michał Krupa m.krupa@uw.edu.pl 2023-09-29T00:00:00+02:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/771 Cyril and Methodius.
