Old Slavonic Texts in Unicode

A corpus of texts in Old Church Slavonic encoded in Unicode, based on the Corpus Cyrillo-Methodianum Helsingiense. All texts have been rendered in Cyrillic, so that original text in the Glagolitic alphabet has been transliterated over character-for-character.

Some transcription conventions to note: Titlos over entire words have been transcribed as titlos over the first letter of the word. Titlos over non-initial letters in the transcription correspond to superscript letters in the original. Percent signs (%) indicate places where the transcription is incomplete or needs to be checked. Question marks (?) indicate places where the original text is illegible. Square brackets ([]) indicate interpolated material. Braces ({}) indicate dittography or superfluous material. Text bracketed by equals signs (==) indicates it was a later addition to the manuscript. Angle brackets (<>) indicate material not visible according to Moszyński. Numbers before each line are the same as in the Corpus Cyrillo-Methodianum Helsingiense; see here for interpretation.

Because these pages contain a lot of text and load a special font with strong Old Cyrillic support, they make take a while to load. For each page, a PDF is provided as an alternative to the raw text.
