Title: Byzantine Erotapocritic Literature in Slavonic Translation with Special Attention to the Important Role Played by Anastasius Sinaita's Interrogationes et responsiones in the Conversion of the Slavs
Author(s): THOMSON, Francis J.
Volume: 84 Date: 2014
The significant role which erotapocritic literature played in the reception of Byzantine culture by the Slavs is shown by a survey of the Slavonic translations in the fields of theology, both doctrinal and polemic, exegesis, monasticism, spirituality, morality, hagiography. Because of their importance special attention is paid to the translations of collections of both Anastasius Sinaita’s Interrogationes and responsiones and pseudo-Anastasian collections with their accompanying prefaces and appendices, which were eminently suitable for the instruction of the new converts.
