R. P. Joannicius Basilovits OSBM (1742 – 1821), spiritual developer and a crucial person of the Byzantine-Slavic tradition in Slovakia, played an important role in the expansion of Basilian monks in the historical Eparchy of Mukachevo. As a strict monastic superior, he demonstrated an intense interest in monastic discipline while being a specialist in that field. The Basilovits’s Latin ascetical work Imago vitae monasticae (A Picture of Monastic Life) is evidence of the existence of monastic life according to Byzantine tradition during that period. It was published as the only of his works in Košice (Slovakia) in 1802 for the needs of monks. Basilovits was very demanding towards his monks. In his work, he presented a real monastic picture and its details and applied them into a practical monastic life. The present edition includes the interpretation and detailed processing of the text which contains its transliteration and translation from Latin to Slovak language. Linguistic and stylistic particularities of the Neo-Latin literary source are also pertracted in the edition. It is possible to find out about the Eastern traditions in that area as Eastern Slovakia and today’s Transcarpathian region of the Ukraine as the interface between Latin and Byzantine Slavicity
