Uzhhorod polustav

Uzhhorod polustav [Ужгородський «Полустав»; Uzhhorodskyi “Polustav”] (Uzhhorod Semi-Uncial). A 209-folio Church Slavonic manuscript of the late 14th to early 15th centuries containing one of the oldest extant East Slavic books of monastic rule. According to Oleksander Kolessa it was first composed in Kyiv and then copied in eastern Transcarpathia, possibly at the Hrusheve Monastery. For many years the manuscript was stored in the library of the Prosvita society in Uzhhorod. Now it is preserved at the Transcarpathian Regional Studies Museum in Uzhhorod.
