Parrésia IX–X (2015–2016)

A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies

Michal Řoutil, Pavel Milko (eds.)

The new issue of the Journal Parrésia offers – in addition to a number of other articles – a unique study of a sinologist V. Liščák, focused on the so-called “Tang” or “Nestorian” Christianity in China and its Jesuit reflection in the 17th century. Liščák’s translation of the famous bilingual stele from Si-an (781) represents the first  rendering of this remarkable monument from Chinese and Syriac into Czech.

Arabic Christianity and Christianity in the Arab world is also a challenge for us Europeans, and a fundamental insight into this issue is brought by L. Nosek in his study “Arabica Christiana: Several thematic insights”. The inspiring contribution to the controversy between Christianity and Islam is represented by Nosek’s translation of the writings of the Syriac theologian and translator of Hunayn ibn Ishaq († 873) “On How to Gain the Truth of Religion”.

Among other topics, M. Luptáková’s study is focused on the sensorial perception and defense of the iconostasis in the iconoclast polemics; P. Košťálová examines the Armenian scribe from Lvov, Simeon Lehatsi; L. Havlíková’s extensive study brings a new perspective on the medieval historiography of Slavic peoples in  Southeast Europe, etc. In an interview with the French historian Raymond Kévorkian, we address issues related to the Armenian genocide and the current state of research in this field.

Parrésia VIII (2014)

A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies

Michal Řoutil, Pavel Milko (eds.)

The eighth annual issue of the journal Parrésia opens with an extensive study by M. Řoutil, in which he explores paradoxical traits of Christian holiness on the basis of hagiographical texts. M. Černý has used archival material to prepare his edition of the correspondence between Sava Chilandarec, a Czech resident of the Mount Athos, and the chemist J. Z. Raušar – which serves to add to the already known facts on the interesting life of the former personage. Our theme on Cyril and Methodius is completed with the second part of a translation of J. M.  Vereshchagin’s study, with its novel approach to the emergence of the Glagolitic alphabet, and features an interview with the author.

In the section “Orientalia” the reader will find, amongst other texts, essays on two saints important to the Western and Eastern churches alike ‒ Ephrem the Syrian and Gregory of Narek. M. Martin makes a stimulating contribution to the study of the translation of knowledge along the East-West axis in his essay devoted to the Latin translations of Greek works of the 12th and 13th centuries in relation to Southern Italy, Sicily and the Northern Italian city states.

The section “Fontes” features some new translations, including the first Czech translations of the Armenian Rites of Baptism and the Blessing of a New Habitation, of the 234th letter of St. Basil the Great, and of fragments from the Chronike diegesis by Nicetas Choniates, where the author describes the fall of Constantinople to the Crusaders in 1204.

Parrésia VII (2013)

A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies

Michal Řoutil, Pavel Milko (eds.)

In the seventh issue of the Journal Parrésia a self-contained section has been dedicated to the anniversary of the arrival of the evangelizers of the Slavs in Great Moravia in 873, with particular emphasis on the subsequent progress of the mission and on its influence on other European nations. The section also embraces Part I of a translation of J. M. Vereshchaginʼs highly original study on the invention of the Glagolitic alphabet.

Several further contributions are devoted to another anniversary ‒ that of the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, and to its consequences for the cultural evolution of Greece and other European countries. The present issue also includes original contributions, as well as translations of sources, on Byzantine exorcisms, the desert Fathers, Orthodox asceticism, the Patriarch Photius, the challenge of setting Czech liturgical texts to music in accordance with Byzantine tradition, Russian Orthodox choirs in inter-war Czechoslovakia, recently discovered early manuscript recensions of an important Armenian ode by St. Gregory of Narek, the Arab writings “Cave of Treasureˮ, and on Duke Charles VI Schwarzenberg and his writings on iconography.

Parrésia V (2011)

A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies

Michal Řoutil, Pavel Milko (eds.)

The year 2011 marked 1710 years since the adoption of Christianity as the official religion of Armenia – an event of world cultural significance. The Review Parresia has marked this anniversary by publishing no fewer than eight Armenological contributions, including the first part of a fundamental musicological study by Haig Utidjian on the Armenian Hymnal, his Czech translations (with Martina Pičmanová) of Armenian hymns, as well as essays by Anna Sochová on the historian Łazar P'arpec'i and on Czech-Armenian relations. A profound admiration towards the musical heritage of the Armenian Church is also abundantly evident in our extensive interview with Prof. Evžen Kindler, the artistic director of the vocal ensemble Musica Poetica – who have performed Armenian, Byzantine and Gregorian sacred music for decades, both at home and abroad.

Further contributions include papers on a fascinating miscellany of subjects such as as (amongst others) the burial practices in medieval Rus, God's image in man as a basis for Christian anthropology, the Urmiah mission of the Russian Orthodox Church, and the life and works of the Syrian Jacobite genius, the historian Grigorios Barhebraeus.
