NEW RELEASE: Божественное значение церковнославянских букв / Divine Significance of Church Slavonic Letters

Divine Significance Front Cover Russian edHope and Life Press is pleased to announce the release of Божественное значение церковнославянских букв, the Russian language edition of the Divine Significance of Church Slavonic Letters, written by the Russian Orthodox scholar Larisa Dmitrieva Micallef, Ph.D. Dmitrieva Micallef is a lecturer in linguistics at the Leo Tolstoy Institute of Language and Culture, Moscow, Russia.

In this book, Dmitrieva Micallef reveals and conveys the meaning and outlook of each letter in the Church Slavonic alphabet, with their inherent divine wisdom and cognitive/educative functions. Church Slavonic is the proto-Slav language of Saints Cyril and Methodius, that significantly influenced Russian language, literature, and culture. It is also the old liturgical language of the Orthodox Church. Dmitrieva Micallef explores the origin and intersection of Russian and other Slavonic languages, expertly showing how sociocultural values in both Russia and Orthodoxy were formed through Church Slavonic. Similarities and differences between the Church Slavonic and Russian languages are clarified. Readers are introduced to Church Slavonic as a way of communicating with God, since the alphabet itself, combined together, results in a homily, with the divine wisdom found therein providing the Word of God for a deep spiritual journey.

Божественное значение церковнославянских букв is available in paperback and ebook editions directly from Hope and Life Press, Amazon, and other major booksellers. An English edition is forthcoming soon.
