Introduzione alla lingua paleoslava

  • Nicoletta Marcialis,

In the mid-9th century, the inhabitants of a recently Christianised Slavia started writing and thus entered history thanks to the work of two Byzantine missionaries, the Thessalonian brothers Constantine-Cyril and Methodius, who, inventing a new alphabet, dared to translate sacred and liturgical texts useful for the young flock in a barbarian vernacular promoted to a cultured and sacred language. The introduction to the Paleoslavic language traces the lines of this story, which profoundly influenced Slavic culture, marking its mentality and determining the evolution of modern national languages, and in particular Russian. The text is about the origin, the transformations and the function of the Paleoslavic language within medieval Slavia and provides an accurate phonetic, morphological and syntactic description, accompanied by numerous examples and morphological tables.
