Liturgical language of the Byzantine-Slavic tradition faithful in Slovakia
Liturgický jazyk veriacich byzantsko-slovanskej tradície na Slovensku
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Prof. PhDr. Žeňuch Peter DrSc.
Annotation: The project pursues the linguistic characteristics of the liturgical language of the Byzantine-Slavic Church in Slovakia. It focuses especially on the synchronic – diachronic description of the Old Church Slavonic language in use in the Slovak linguistic and cultural milieu. This project builds on the actual results of the research conducted on the Cyrillic writings of the liturgical and non-liturgical type. Special attention is paid to synchronic linguistic characteristics on phonetic and morphologic phenomena in oral prayer utterance by Slovak faithful pronounced in Old Church Slavonic. The description of status of the linguistic variant of Old Church Slavonic among Slovak users is inevitable especially for the contrastive research of the language of Cyrillic written monuments of the Slovak provenience. It regards especially monuments connected with the religious life of the Byzantine rite in Slovakia, and from the point of view of the linguistic – ethnical communication in the liturgical context, too.
Duration: 1.1.2021 - 31.12.2024
Everyday Life in Interaction of Latin and Byzantine Culture on Example of Carpathian Region in Modern Period
Každodennosť v interakcii latinskej a byzantskej kultúry na príklade karpatského regiónu v novoveku
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Prof. PhDr. ThDr. Zubko Peter PhD.
Annotation:Research of everyday life against the background of confessional stereotypes helps to explore history of society. Interactions in the area under Carpathians where western and eastern cultures meet represents grateful research subject. It is necessary to clarify processes that formed population in the region under Carpathians as well as their own culture and lead to ethnic or religious tensions. Synergy of each ethnic-confessional communities represents a balanced entirety based on natural intercultural and interconfessional communication and mobility. This relation is mirrored in contemporary Latin and Cyrillic literary culture, especially in administrative-legal agenda, official documents, homilies, morals, rules of secular and monastic life and their interpretations, different manuals, catechisms, and musical monuments. In this context relation between Eastern and major Latin culture on the background of interactions with state or actual forced political ideology is specifically observed.

Preparation and publication of a handwriting book of sermons and the Holy Scriptures interpretations from the 18th century
Príprava a vydanie rukopisu ponaučení a výkladov k Svätému písmu z 18. storočia
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Šašerina Svetlana PhD.
Annotation:An annotated edition of the Cyrillic manuscript of Kliment Bukovsky from the 18th century, which belongs to the corpus of didactical gospels. This type of manuscripts, including sermons and interpretations of the Holy Scriptures on Sundays and feast days of a liturgical year, were used for education and preparation of homiletics. Because of their didactic nature, they were widely spreaded and used. The variety of this genre was determined by the non-canonical nature. The script tradition of non-liturgical texts, including the genres of didactical gospels, enabled authors to compile different sources, including translations from a foreign language to the local language. In this way, several versions of manuscripts were created. By their comparison we can see the migration of individual texts and motives, cultural and religious communication of communities in the Carpathian area, the value system of ordinary believers and other daily life aspects of members of the Byzantine rite under the Carpathians.
Duration: 1.1.2020 - 31.12.2023
