The Church Slavonic alphabet as the divine mystery

The Church Slavonic alphabet as the divine mystery

Religion and language in post–Soviet Russia / Brian P. Bennett.   If it is not an oxymoron, a kind of quotidian mysticism infonns ecclesiastical literature on Church Slavonic. The notion of some kind of”secret” or “mystery” hidden within the script is found frequently in catechetical materials.
