Summary/Abstract: AN UNKNOWN TRANSCRIPT OF THE OFFICE FOR ST. JOHN THE NEOMARTYR OF SUCEAVA BY GREGORY TZAMBLAK GEORGI PETKOV (PLOVDIV) (Summary) The article introduces to the scientific community one previously unknown transcript of the Office for St. John the Neomartyr of Suceava written at the end of the 15th century. It is thought to be 80 years earlier than the existing copies of the Office known at present. This new transcript is a part of a miscellany, Russian edition, in the Synod collection of the Russian Orthodox Church, now kept in the State Historical archive in St. Petersburg. The article gives a short description of the manuscript and provides the complete text of the office including the spelling peculiarities. The transcript is compared with two previous editions of the Office and the discrepancies are highlighted. In broad outline the differences illustrate the usage of the lexical forms, omission or addition of words and phrases. In the text of this transcript the exact acrostic with Gregory Tzamblaks’s name is clearly visible.
