Language, Literature and Paleography Research of Croatian Glagolitic Heritage (2006-2010-2013)
The following important segments of the Croatian Glagolitic heritage will be investigated: linguistics, paleography and literature. The Grammar of the Croatian Church Slavonic Language will be completed for publication. It will be the first systematic description of that language, one of the first redactional grammars of any Church Slavonic language in general. Two monographs, a doctoral thesis and 25 papers will be completed, and the results of the research will be presented at least at 17 conferences, all about Croatian Church Slavonic language. Volumes 13-17 of the Dictionary of the Croatian redaction of Church Slavonic will be completed and, if possible, published. It is the continuation of dictionary articles beginning with letters V, G, D (according to the Glagolitic alphabet). The facsimiles of the Croatian Glagolitic sources from 11th-13th c. with their paleographic identity cards and comparative character tables will be published on-line. Paleographic analysis of the Kiev Missal will show the degree of similarity of this oldest Glagolitic manuscript with the geometric normative character form and will be published on-line: kiev.stin.hr. The artistic school and/or painter of the miniatures of Hrvoje's Misal will be identified. Computer progams will be developed for input and search of data in linguistics, lexicography, codicology, paleography, literature and Bible readings and for Glagolitic character recognition. Glagolitic paleography portal will be put on the web address of the Old Church Slavonic Institute. Research of literary themes: I.CROATIAN AND EUROPEAN HAGIOGRAPHY. LITERARY HISTORY AND TEXTOLOGY. 1.
