The Cases of the Dispute between Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Antichrist and the Story about Beautiful Joseph

Abstract

The mixed-content miscellanies could be defined as a unifying genre of the 'readable' type of unstable makeup and varied content. Manuscripts that reflect the nucleus of characteristic works in expanded or reduced form, providing they feature sufficient textological proof of common origin or typological similarity, could be classified with a certain type. The present study on the Dispute between Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Antichrist and on the The Story about beautiful Joseph has two objectives: 1) to introduce several so far unstudied South Slavonic manuscripts that contain mainly apocrypha, and 2) to reveal how the differences between initial translations and secondary editing of Slavonic apocrypha are indicative of the intervention of the Slavic writer.
