Catalogue of the Slavonic Cyrillic Manuscripts of the National Szechenyi Library

Edited by Ralph Clemminsson and Elisaveta Moussakova

This volume provides a thorough introduction to the Cyrillic collection, and contains the detailed descriptions of the fifty-six Slavonic Cyrillic codices or fragments thereof held by the National Széchényi Library in Budapest, the vast majority of which are here described for the first time. The analysis of the codices has been done using the resources of modern technology. Written from the thirteenth to early nineteenth century, the codices were mostly produced within the confines of the historical Kingdom of Hungary. The catalogue is extensively illustrated with pictures of the most characteristic and decorative pages and a few covers of the codices. This publication is a further step towards the complete documentation of the Cyrillic manuscript heritage of Central Europe.

It restricts itself moreover to codices and fragments of codices, thus excluding charters and other archival documents, and to manuscripts written principally in Slavonic languages: the Library’s collection of Rumanian cyrillic manuscripts is not described...

On the History of our Slavonic Cyrillic Manuscripts

pp. xxv-xil

Although the collections of the National Széchényi Library have always included books and manuscripts in Slavonic languages, collecting them has never been part of the main focus of the acquisitions policy of the National Library. Therefore the collection is not the outcome of a planned system, but our Slavonic material has rather grown by itself, finding its natural place among Hungarica as a regional Hungaricum within the “Patriotica” materials, i.e. those relating to the historical Kingdom of Hungary. This means it is made up of documents...
