On the eve of the 500th anniversary of the creation of the Nobel Gospel, a round table was held in Rivne region. Representatives of museums, local historians and historians of the region took part in the online Zoom conference. It was reported by Rivne 1.

As the Director of the Rivne Regional Museum Alexander Bulyga noted, the date of the event is not accidental, because it was June 1 that the copying of this great book was completed. The Gospel of Nobel says, “...this book copy was completed in June, on the first day of the month, the day of Saint Justin, the Philosopher and Holy Martyr Justin."

According to the Head of the Department of Culture and Tourism of the Rivne Regional State Administration Lyubov Romanyuk, 2020 is not accidentally declared the Year of Cultural Heritage. "The region has powerful spiritual potential, in particular, for the birth of such historical manuscripts as the Gospels of Nobel, Peresopnytsia and Ostrog, which this year celebrate significant anniversaries. At first, the measures provided for many image events, but the pandemic made its adjustments. This did not prevent us from transforming, and we will continue to plan the year and celebrate cultural anniversaries," Lubov Romanyuk told the participants of the conference.

Lyudmyla Shakhmatova, an employee of the local History Museum, told about the history of the great manuscript.

In ancient times, Nobel was an important urban center in the Polissya (Woodlands) of Volyn. There were five churches, where schools operated, and books were written. And here in one of them, St Nicholas Church, in 1520, the copying of the text of Gospels was completed. In particular, we read therein:

"...this book, called the Four Gospels, was created under king Sigismund, Bishop Jonah, Lord of Turov and Pinsk, under Prince Fyodor Yaroslavovich, by the command of the Christ-lover, servant of God Simeon Batyevich, the elder of Khoin, and given to the temple ... St. Nicholas in the Nobel. And whoever takes this book from the Church of St. Nicholas in the city of Nobel, Pinsk district, may he be cursed in this age and in the ages to come. Copied by the deacon, the many-sinned servant of God Sebastian Avramovych in Nobel. This book is finished in the month of June, on the first day of the month, on the day of Saint Justin, the Philosopher and Martyr Justin."

However, in the book, there is mention of another scribe - deacon Levko. Therefore, it is likely that several scribes worked on the book.

Overall, the Nobel gospel testifies to the high level of written culture that existed in Ukraine during the Middle Ages. This is one of the oldest written monuments of the Polissya of Volyn.

      За часів союза, УПЦ підлягала моіковському патріярхату, примусово. Від незалежності УПЦ старалась отримати незалежність від Москви. Тепер, коли Україна має ТОМОС та незалежність то Лавру потрібно

      Последние события показали глубокий кризис РПЦ МП, где только отдельные редкие священнослужители твёрдо исповедуют Православную Веру, как схиигумен отец Сергий Романов, которого сейчас травят
