Cyrillic Literature in Slovakia until the End of 18 Century
Cyrilské písomníctvo na Slovensku do konca 18. storočia
Program: SRDA
Project leader: Prof. PhDr. Žeňuch Peter DrSc.
Annotation:The project will introduce the Cyrillic Literature of the Byzantine-Slavic tradition in Slovakia that were being created in relation to culture-historical processes in the Eparchy of Mukachevo by the end of the 18th century. During the project solution a comprehensive research will be realized. For the first time in the history of Slovakia the systematized linguistic-historical and culture-confessional interpretation of the Cyrillic written tradition will be presented as a part of its cultural heritage. The project includes an edition of the Cyrillic manuscript source of the rules of profane and sacred life in the early 17th century as well. This rare and unique manuscript source retains the particular Byzantine-Slavic tradition with enjambements to the profane milieu in the Carpathian region. Through an interdisciplinary perspective on the development of the Byzantine-Slavic tradition resources conditioning national and culture-confessional processes related to cultural horizon of the Greek Church of the Slavic tradition in the Carpathians are identified.

Music theory in Slovakia in the 16th –18th centuries
Hudobná teória na Slovensku v 16.–18. storočí
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. art. Kačic Ladislav PhD.
Annotation:Music theory is one of the hitherto little-researched areas of older history in Slovakia. In contrast e.g. to the Czech Republic, in Slovakia there is an entire absence of an edition of important sources from the 16th to the 19th centuries, which might offer high-quality text-critical publications for the benefit of further (including international) research as well as teaching practice. Such publications presuppose the collaboration of music historians and philologists, a requirement which this project will for the first time fulfil.

Nexus Slavorum Latini: Inter-Slavonic Relations and Parallels as Mirrored in Neo-Latin Literature, XVIth–XIXth cc.
Nexus Slavorum Latini: medzislovanské vzťahy a súvislosti v zrkadle latinskej literatúry (16.-19. storočie)
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Zavarský Svorad PhD.
Annotation:The proposed project is based on the combination of Slavistics and Neo-Latin studies. This concept of exploring early modern literary culture may be beneficial for both the fields involved in this project: International Neo-Latin research has thus far been focused mainly on the centres of the Renaissance humanism and the western part of Europe in general. The other part of the continent, which is predominantly Slavonic, has been but scarcely reflected internationally. If we take into consideration the fact that it was among the Slavonic peoples (in Bohemia, Poland, Slovakia and Croatia) that the Latin language remained in use longest, it becomes obvious that Slavistics would be incomplete without research into the Latin culture of the Slavs. The project team will concentrate on some selected Latin literary monuments from the 16th to 18th centuries, in which inter-Slavonic connections and parallels are manifestly apparent.
Duration: 1.1.2016 - 31.12.2019

State and Prospects of Ethnolinguistic Research in Slovakia
Stav a perspektívy etnolingvistického výskumu na Slovensku
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Doc. Mgr. Žeňuchová Katarína PhD.
Annotation:The project is focused on research of language as a cultural phenomenon that works in a broader national context in union with the traditional spiritual culture (rituals, customs, superstitions) and oral folklore tradition. This perspective on language has found its expression in ethnolinguistics, which explores the close connection between language and the traditional spiritual culture as two inseparable and mutually contingent components of social identity. Ethnolinguistics perceives language as a means of communication, but above all as an expression of the culture of each community through various concepts and verbal statements related to economic, historical, social and spiritual milieu with regard to its development. Within the project we will focus on selected ethnolinguistic phenomena in relation to current existing ethnolinguistically oriented research in Slovakia, which is essential also for the Slavic ethnolinguistics in general.

Terminological Discourses and the Specifics of Biblical Languages in the Context of Slovak Bible Translations
Terminologické diskurzy a špecifiká biblických jazykov vzhľadom na preklady Biblie do slovenčiny
Program: SRDA
Project leader: Doc. ThLic. Lapko Róbert Th.D., PhD.
Duration: 1.7.2017 - 30.6.2021

Edition of Cyrillic Manuscript from 18th Century with Commentary and Notes
Vydanie cyrilského rukopisu z 18. storočia s komentármi a poznámkovým aparátom
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Prof. PhDr. Žeňuch Peter DrSc.
Annotation:The project focuses on the commented edition of Cyrillic manuscript with description of the cultural and historical development of the Byzantine- Slavic confession from the 18th century in the Carpathian area. The manuscript presents unique set of historical events commented by author, which are based on contemporary Latin and Church Slavic sources, chronicles and former historical and ecclesiological writings in narrative and literary sources (Apology, lives of Saints, chronicles etc.), that is in such an amount rarity. This manuscript, therefore, will assess levels in education among prominent figures of cultural and social process, the holders of the Eastern Rite in Slovakia. Confrontation with traditional Latin environment reveals particularities of cultural communication and ways they have been dealt with in order to maintain own identity on a map of Hungary. Edition, including diplomatic transcription will contain critical commentary on identified sources quoted in manuscript.
Duration: 1.1.2017 - 31.12.2020
