Summary/Abstract: This paper explores the thematic content and structure of „W Пророчествa Исаиниа ” in Ms. F. I. 461 (RNL, Saint-Petersburg) dating from the last quarter of 14th century. Based on observations on the commentated biblical pericopes in Old Church Slavonic translation and their comparison with preserved Byzantine Church fathersí commentaries, the author expounds the thesis that this is a selected Christological commentary of the catena type to selected verses of the Book of Isaiah. The major part of the biblical verses commentated on in F. I. 461 could also be found in the Parimejnik and Prophetologian as a set of lections for the matins and vespers of the Great Lent and Pentecost cycle. Thus these readings are connected to the cycle of Lordís feasts. The comparison of the segmentation of the texts and translation of citations from other biblical books taken from Byzantine commentaries confirm Evseevís conclusion that the biblical text and the commentaries had been translated simultaneously. Therefore the biblical text and the commentaries in F. I. 461 must be studied as a unit and primarily as an exegetical piece, which can provide additional data for the diffusion and understanding of the Old Testament Book of Isaiah in Mediaeval Bulgaria.
