Summary/Abstract: GEORGI POPOV AT 65 REGINA KOYCHEVA (SOFIA) (Summary) The article sums up the most important achievements of the outstanding Bulgarian palaeoslavist Prof. Georgi Popov on the occasion of his 65th anniversary. It is centered around the main topic of his studies – medieval Slavic hymnography – and presents the most important attainments of the scholar in three groups: 1) Discoveries of unknown poetic works and other important monuments, as well as of facts related to the attribution of certain texts; 2) Literary history of the rise and development of the Old Bulgarian hymnography; 3) Theoretical studies in the realm of hymnology and of palaeoslavic studies in general. The article summarizes Popov’s views on some principal theoretical problems, such as: the function and significance of the acrostic, the reasons for the flowering of the Old Bulgarian original hymnography in the ninth century, the specificity of the hymnographic text as a synthesis of original and translated components, etc.
