Re: Slavonic Gospel Book Question
- Dear Friends --
My Church Slavonic gospel is a 1973 Russian Orthodox Youth Committee (ROCOR) reprint of the 1898 Moscow edition.
In this book, the Gospel of Luke is preceded by three sections:
1. Page 141 recto: a one-paragraph 'Life' of St Luke by St Dorotheos, martyred bishop of Tyre
2. Page 141 verso - Page 146 recto: a chapter and verse precis of topics
3. Page 146 verso - Page 147 verso: a 'Foreword' giving biographic details of St Luke and thematic/theological dimensions of his gospel, author unattributed but may well be the work of St Dorotheos and the source of the brief extract described at #1 above, with which it shares much of the same vocabulary.
Hope this helps a little.
Peace and blessings to all.

- Would anyone with a working knowledge of Slavonic here be willing to
translate the short introductory paragraph attributed to Dorotheus of Tyre
in the Gospel Book for St. Mark? It starts out (I think) "Mark the
Evangelist, first bishop of Alexandria..."
Thanks in advance,
