Summary/Abstract: SOME NOTES ON THE CULT OF ST. PROCHOROS OF PŠINJA IN MEDIEVAL BULGARIA DIMO CHESHMEDZHIEV (PLOVDIV) (Summary) This article represents an attempt to collect all data from hagiography, hymnography and mural painting where information about the cult of St. Prochoros of Pšinja can be found. Special attention is being paid to the question of the commemoration dates of the saint. One of these dates, October 19th, coincides with the main date for the celebration of St. John of Rila. Thus, St. Prochoros of Pšinja is connected with St. John of Rila. Consequently, the hypothesis is made that this connection was caused by another pair of Christian saints who were often mentioned and depicted together – St. John the Evangelist and his closest student and follower, St. Prochoros.
