Summary/Abstract: The article is the first one dedicated to the Calendar peculiarities of the fourth early printed book of the Bulgarian printer Yakov Kraykov – the miscellany “Book for various occasions” released in 1571–1572, Venice. The book has not been subjected to digitalization or facsimile reproduction yet. The current analy-sis is based on the full Leiden University copy № 1370G21 from Joseph Justus Scaliger’s collection, testifying to the presence of the Balkan popular traditions, attested mostly in the topographic environment of the commemorations. At the same time, the Calendar offers a relatively complete picture of the 16th century Southern Slavic pantheon of saints. Another specific feature of the Calendar is the cult of St. Rocco (23.08), and the cult of St. Nicolas of Myra’s uncle (30.06), which reflects local worship traditions. In conclusions, the article searches the relations between Yakov’s calendar and the cultural heritage of the Greek-Slavic Orthodox community in Venice, as well as with the Serbian Diaspora from Adriatic coast, and finally with the Mount Athos’ s tradition.
