Summary/Abstract: The object of research is a manuscript № 1160, stored in the Church-Historical and Archival Institute in Sofia. Written at the end of the 14th century, it contains texts by ecclesiastical and secular law and didactic stories, among them works of (Pseudo-) Basil of Caesarea: excerpts from letters to Amphilochius, penances from Epitimias in monachos deliquentes and Epitimias in canonicas, and others, a fragment of the Constitutiones asceticae and two short parenetic texts for monks. Some of the texts signed with the name of Cappadocia saint still have no original Greek or Slavic parallels. The legacy of (pseudo) Basil of Caesarea in medieval Bulgaria requires further research.
