Summary/Abstract: The report specifies the origin of the inscription in the scroll of Moses the Prophet from the Church of the Virgin Hodegetria in Peć (1330s). It was established to be an incipit of the paroemia Ios. 5:10-15 (on Easter Saturday) in a version recorded in Cyrillic liturgical manuscripts of the late twentieth/fourteenth century. In the course of the research, the origin of an inscription in the scroll of Isaiah the Prophet from the Church of Joachim and Anna in Studenitsa (1318/1319) was also ultimately specified. It proved to be an incipit of the paroemia Is. 42:5-16 (on the fifth Thursdays of Great Lent) in a textual version known from a Cyrillic manuscript of the early thirteenth century. The two epigraphic fragments are yet another evidence of the direct relation between part of the mural inscriptions and the usual at the time scribal liturgical practice.
