Cantus Catholici, Benedikt Sőlőši SJ, Cyrillic paraliturgical hymns, Latin-Slovak relations.
The Slovak-Latin Cantus Catholici hymnbook was an important means of Catholic renewal in Slovakia. This 17th-century printed book, of which only two copies are now extant, is a source of valuable information for different fields of study. Up to now, research has concentrated mainly on the hymnological and liturgical aspects of the hymnbook. Our aim is to present a broader interdisciplinary view of Cantus Catholici by joining the different approaches of musicology, slavistics and Neo-Latin philology. Being a bilingual publication, the hymnbook provides a rich source for the study of Latin-vernacular relations. Another particularly interesting aspect of the hymnbook is the way in which it affected the paraliturgical chant tradition of the Byzantine-Slavonic church in Eastern Slovakia. The following text was presented at the poster session of the 15th Congress of the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies in Münster, Germany, 5–10 August 2012.
