Summary/Abstract: The well-known “Thessaloniki Legend”, which was written in the 11th–12th centuries or in the 14th century, is the subject of the study. This is one of the most interesting works of Bulgarian Medieval literature. The attention centers on two of its copies: the copy of a manuscript of the 16th century, filed under No 52 (39) in Nikolać Monastery near Bielo Polé in Montenegro (the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) and the well-known Kriva Palanka copy, presently of an unknown location. The text of the copy from Nikolać Monastery (with variants of all the other known copies) and an unknown copy of the Kriva Palanka copy, done in 1886 by G. Angelov and kept at the Scientific Archive of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia (fund 141, archive unit 335) are analysed and published for the first time. Three photographs of the copy in Nikolać Monastery and four photographs of copies made in 19th century, are applied.
