The focus of the symposium participants will primarily be laid on the manuscripts that contain texts and commentaries concerning the Old and New Testament, including those intended for liturgical services. Moreover, the issues regarding the first printed Slavic versions of the Bible, as well as the connections between the Greek (Byzantine) and Slavic monuments will be discussed. The topic of the digitization of Slavonic biblical texts, their electronic editions and online databases is yet another subject to be debated. Scientists from various fields of the humanities are invited to attend.
