  • Summary/Abstract:

    The author uses comparative methods of analysis to reconstruct the contents of folia missing from four medieval Slavic Parimejniks: internal evidence from scribal instructions directing readers to other parts of the manuscript proves the most helpful. The structure of the Slavic Old Testament lectionary is briefly described, and the sources of variations in the codices, such as changes in the Typikon, different redactions, and local customs, are explored.
