Summary/Abstract: The scientific report deals with the inscription of 1499 around the image of Jesus Christ Pantocrator on the dome of the church in the Monastery of St. John the Theologian at the village of Poganovo (now in Serbia). It has been established that it was a troparion by Basil the Great, sung on Holy Saturdays. Some collations suggest that the protograph of the inscription ought to be searched among the edited texts of the midor late fourteenth century. Its place in liturgy is compared to that of Psalm 101:20b-23a, also inscribed on the dome of the church. It is argued that both texts have been selected in relation to their usage in the course of the Easter services. In the case of Psalm 101:20b-23a, the epigraphic tradition of the Palaiologian period has had its serious impact. In all probability, Sileat omnis caro is directly related to the composition Heavenly Liturgy, unfolding beneath. In this context it is also treated as the textual beginning of the mural.
