This book searches for the origin of the Kiev Leaflets. In view of the original text of Prayer 20 in the Glagolitic manuscript, which is a prayer for protection from the Hungarians, the probable period in which the texts were written was defined as between the years 894 and 900. Therefore, as the book argues, this oldest of Slavic manuscripts does not originate from the Bulgarian-Macedonian linguistic environment. Rather, it has both West and South Slavic features and no dialect can better explain the manuscript's individual accentological, phonological and morphological features than the Common Slavic dialect of the Eastern Obodrites in the Ung (Uzhhorod, Ukraine) Principality. This was the seat of the princely Bogat-Radvan family, who came from Moravia/Bohemia. This book is thus designed for teachers, students, and others interested in Slavic languages of all three subgroups, as well as those interested in history and literature of East-Central Europe.
