Summary/Abstract: The computer collation project was originally conceived with the narrow purpose of providing a mechanism for identifying the textual tradition of the Curzon and Banica menologies by comparing them against a wide variety of contemporaneous and older Slavic menologies. It became clear, however, that the same corpus and search program that would permit the comparative analysis of these two individual menology texts could also be employed more broadly to collate the corpus by specific textual patterns, in this way establishing a typology of medieval Slavic menology traditions which could be used, together with the text corpus itself, by other scholars both as a framework for analysis of any given menology manuscript, and as a means of tracing manuscript relationships.
