Nauka, journal (Learning). A popular Russophile journal published in Kolomyia (December 1871 to 1876), Lviv (1877–86), Vienna (1886–1900, after it was banned in Galicia by Metropolitan Sylvester Sembratovych), Chernivtsi (1902–6), and again in Lviv (1906–14, 1924–39). Founded by Rev Ivan Naumovych, it was published and edited by him (1871–86), F. Drozdovsky (1872), and D. Kozaryshchuk (1886–1900). From 1873 Nauka was a monthly. In 1892 it appeared only until May, and from 1893 to 1900 it was published, with interruptions, in double and triple issues. Nauka published excerpts from the Bible, sermons, religious articles, news, commentaries on Galician affairs, prose and poetry, folklore, and articles on farming, medicine, science, other lands (eg, Africa), the ‘Ruthenian’ language, and historical subjects. Between 1879 and 1881 it published a religious supplement Slovo Bozhe. Nauka was initially published in the Galician vernacular, but Naumovych soon switched over to the use of the yazychiie. From 1924 it was an organ of the Kachkovsky Society.
