The comments to my article yesterday on the Works of Methodius are very useful. Commenter “Maureen” has tracked down what look very like publications in Russian of some of the smaller works — precisely the ones that I want to get hold of.
I’ve never tried to get hold of material in Russian, and of course I don’t speak it. I wonder how best to do so. A few PDF’s seem definitely called for!
Today I have to go on a journey, so I can’t do more right now, but I shall think about this.
UPDATE: I have now identified an anglicised name for the journal in which the text appears, and a location where I can get copies. See the comments to the Works of Methodius post for details.
I realise that all this may seem a little dry. But the details of how I worked out, from a string of Cyrillic characters, where to find a journal in a language I don’t read, might be of general utility. And having the details online may save me some trouble when I get confused looking for it in the stacks in a week or two!
