BT - Biblical Text and its Terminological Discourses in Modern Colloquial Language: The Example of the Pauline Letters

Biblický text a jeho terminologické diskurzy v modernom spisovnom jazyku. Na príklade Listov apoštola Pavla

Duration: 1. 7. 2021 - 30. 6. 2025
Evidence number:APVV-20-0130
Program: APVV
Project leader: Prof. Lapko Róbert Th.D., PhD.
Annotation:The purpose of this project is to produce a terminological non-confessional Slovak nomenclature of the texts of authentic letters of Paul based on the Greek original, with a consideration of the status of modern Slovak language in the context of Slavic Bible translation in general and Slovak Bible translation in particular.

Liturgical language of the Byzantine-Slavic tradition faithful in Slovakia

Liturgický jazyk veriacich byzantsko-slovanskej tradície na Slovensku

Duration: 1. 1. 2021 - 31. 12. 2024
Evidence number:VEGA 2/0002/21
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.

Between folk tales and science: exploring a shared noetic space

Medzi rozprávkou a vedou: výskum spoločného noetického priestoru

Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2023
Evidence number:VEGA 2/0063/20
Program: VEGA
Project leader: doc. PaedDr. ThDr. Marinčák Šimon PhD.
Annotation:The project aims to promote interdisciplinary co-operation between Neo-Latin philology and Slavonic folk narrative research. This combination implies original and innovative research into selected phenomena and concepts which in the past were, on the one hand, present in folk narratives and oral culture, but, on the other hand, were part of scholarly discourse (Latin scientific literature and fiction) as well. We shall explore the mutual relationships between the two noetic systems, focusing on their similarities and differences, on the way they overlapped and interfered. The source material of both the involved disciplines clearly shows that popular and scholarly patterns of knowledge represented complementary systems. Our goal is to search for a definition of the relationship between the two systems, thereby contributing to a more adequate and contextual understanding of how the mentioned phenomena and concepts were represented in both folk narratives and Latin scholarly literature.

Image of World and Man in Demonological Narratives. Structurally-Semantic Research of Demonological Legends

Obraz sveta a človeka v démonologických naratívoch Štruktúrno-sémantický výskum démonologických povestí.

Duration: 1. 1. 2021 - 31. 12. 2024
Evidence number:VEGA 2/0133/21
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Doc. Mgr. Žeňuchová Katarína PhD.
Annotation:In the context of interdisciplinary research attention is paid to systems of folk mythology on Slovakia through the prism of narrative folk texts. The main practical intention of the project is systematization of demonological collection of legends, written in Slovakia, which bring new information about mythologization of natural phenomena (wind, storm, lightning, thunder), human states (personification of illnesses, fate, death), perception of people with unhuman demon-like powers (hags, witches, soothsayers), demonic images of the dead and the afterlife (spirits, revenants, the unchristened dead, suicide). From the theoretical perspective the project brings source material, which might prove helpful with linguistic nominal research of distinct demonologems and with description of typology of elements in Slovak folk demonology, which helps clarify, how this description corresponds with other Slavic traditional systems.

Transformations and contexts of cultural identity in the enclave and diaspora: on the example of Slovaks and Rusnaks in the Lowlands

Premeny a súvislosti kultúrnej identity v enkláve a diaspóre: na príklade Slovákov a Rusnákov na Dolnej zemi

Duration: 1. 1. 2023 - 31. 12. 2026
Evidence number:VEGA 2/0045/23
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Hríbová Marína PhD.
Annotation:The project deals with linguistic and literary-cultural communication in the environment of the enclave and diaspora. The relationship to tradition, values and linguistic-confessional memory becomes the starting point for synchronic-diachronic research of linguistic expressions in selected literary monuments and in other spheres of written culture from the 18th century in the environment of Slovak Evangelicals, Catholics, and Greek Catholics in the Lowlands. Cooperation of linguistic, literary, and cultural-oriented Slavistics and Slovakistics is essential for our research. An important part is the research of the relationship of the separated community to its confessional and linguistic tradition in the context of preserving the collective identity. Comparative research focuses on valuable coherences of communication processes, which provide space for understanding the relationship of the lowland community to the mother country in diverse linguistic-confessional context of the development of their identity.

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

Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2023
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Žeňuchová 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.
