Bulgarian Revision of the Menaion in the Thirteenth Century

Summary/Abstract: The subject of study are the Menaia 1/4 and 1/5 in the collection of V. Grigorovič at the State Scientific Library in Odessa, dating from the second half of the thirteenth century. Their textological research in comparison with the early Russian Menaia, on the one hand, and with the South-Slavic copies from archaic protographs, on the other, leads to the conclusion that the two codices are an evidence of a complete renovation of this hymnographic book, performed through the thirteenth century. Some codicological, orthographic and linguistic marks of both manuscripts are reviewed, as well as the specific features of the calendar and the structure of the offices therein. The accumulated data suggest that the occurrence of this revision of the Menaion can be localized in one of the newly established literary centers of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom.
