Kult świętych serbskich w monasterach Wielkiego Księstwa Litewskiego do końca XVI wieku
The cult of the Serbian saints in monasteries of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania until the end of the sixteenth century
Languages of publication
The cult of the saints, especially in the sixteenth century, was an important part of religious literature in the Polish-Lithuanian state, due to the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, but also because of the religious Catholic-Orthodox polemics on the eve of the Union of Brest. Among Serbian and South-Slavonic saints the most famous were: St. Paraskeva-Petka of Tyrnovo, St. Sava Serbian, St. Simon and St. John of Suchava.The presence of South-Slavonic element in the liturgical tradition of the Orthodox Church in the Polish-Lithuanian state is the local specificity that distinguishes Orthodoxy in the Republic and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from the Orthodox Church in the great Russian state.
