Chapter Summary

The Church Slavonic tradition of Biblical translation is based on a principle of scrupulous faithfulness. This chapter examines a range of examples from the Psalms and analyses the ways in which the translator were resolved, drawing on a number of East and South Slavonic psalter manuscripts, both commentated and plain; among the latter the East Slavonic manuscripts FпI2 T28 Amf Luc 8662 Sf64 FпI4 J B Vat and the South Slavonic manuscripts Ox Hval Nor provide the main focus of interest. The most striking examples of the impact of interpretation on the Church Slavonic Psalter text, however, are to be found in the fifteenth- century compilations, J and B. In the course of the fifteenth century the Russians returned to a more literalistic version of the Psalter based on one of the fourteenth century South Slavonic redactions.
