Written as a dissertation at the University of California, and now revised,
RUTHENICA BOHEMICA examines the historical circumstances and textual history of
four fifteenth-century Ruthenian translations from Czech: „The Song of Songs,“
„The Book of Taudal the Knight,“ „The Tale of Sivilla the Prophetess,“ and „The
Book of Tovit.“ The author suggests that these translations may provide textual
evidence of proselytizing activity by the Czech and Croatian Benedictine
Glagolite monks among Orthodox Ruthenians in the fifteenth century. The second
part of the book is devoted to the linguistic description of Ruthenian
translations from Czech.
