Old Testament Apocrypha in Slavonic

The liturgical and theological use and study of Scripture in the Orthodox world has slowly but steadily been gaining greater attention in the last twenty years. We have had a number of recent conferences and books on, e.g., the Septuagint; the uses of the Old Testament, including in Byzantium; and the uses and hermeneutics of the Russian Orthodox Church.  

Now we have a new book out exploring Old Testament apocrypha in the Slavonic world:

Lorenzo DiTommaso and Christfried Bottrich, eds.,The Old Testament Apocrypha in the Slavonic Tradition: Continuity and Diversity (Mohr Siebeck, 2010, 500pp).

This is an international collection of over a dozen articles, some in German but most in English, exploring a variety of questions in East- and South-Slavic, Romanian, and related contexts.
