Languages of publication
The territory of present day Slovakia (which was part of the Hungarian Kingdom prior to 1918) is a boundary region between the areas of dominance of the Western and Eastern Christian rites. The shaping of this overlapping zone was not a simple process and numerous researchers devoted themselves to investigating this topic. This research interest continues. Often discussed is the idea of an uninterrupted continuity of the Eastern/Byzantine/Greek rite in Slovakia from the time of Great Moravia. Researchers offer diverse arguments to substantiate this line of reasoning. One of them is the Spiš Provosts who had supposedly practiced the Eastern rite within the Spiš Chapterhouse. This paper offers a new examination of these arguments based on the preserved historical records (primary sources), subjecting them to a rigorous critical reevaluation.
