Summary/Abstract: This article is a part of the greater study “The cult to the Tărnovo saints St. Petka, St. John of Rila, St. Hilarion of Măglen and St. Michael the Warrior in the Medieval Slavic tradition”. The Prologue text about the translation of the relics of St. Hilarion of Măglen and his Life written by Patriarch Euthymios of Tărnovo were widely spread in Bulgaria and in the rest of the Orthodox commonwealth. From the late fourteenth to the first half of the sixteenth century these literary works were used as Bulgarian sources for the Medieval history of the Balkans and were included in the Russian chronicle from 1512. Thus new Russian redactions appeared and were spread also in miscellanies of various contents. The new redactions reflect the antiheretical tendencies and the reactions against the Novgorod-Moscow heresy at the end of the fifteenth century.
