Ruthenian Version of the Holy Scriptures.

Resource Toolbox

This version, which is of a very recent date, has been prepared for the Ruthenians in Austria, the majority of whom belong to the Orthodox Greek Church, by which the reading of the Holy Scriptures has never been prohibited. In the year 1875 the Gospel according to St. Luke, as prepared by Mr. Kobylanski, was printed, and thus the Word of God was given to the Ruthenian people in their own tongue for the first time. Encouraged by the success of the Ruthenian Gospel of St. Luke, the British and Foreign Bible Society, in the year 1877, resolved to print the Gospel of St. John also, as translated by Mr. Kobylanski, whose translation Prof. Micklovich has critically examined and declared to be a complete success. See the Annual Reports of the Brit. and For. Bible Soc. 1875, p. 46; 1877, p. 51. (B.P.)
