Abstract This contribution deals with a significant gap in the studia Polycarpiana. It focuses, in particular, on a Church Slavonic translation of the Martyrdom of Polycarp, one of the earliest of Christian martyria. This versional evidence has not been published until now and, consequently, not taken into account by any of the previous editions of the Martyrdom. The present article offers a collation and a detailed analysis of the earliest available copy of the translation. Eventually it shows that the Slavonic version may provide an independent (from the extant Greek manuscripts) testimony to the text of the Martyrdom and as such is of significant text-critical value.
