The GORAZD: An Old Church Slavonic Digital Hub project, accessible at, opens up the results of long years of Czech work in Old Church Slavonic studies for use by both experts and the public. These results include the monumental four-volume Old Church Slavonic Dictionary (Slovník jazyka staroslověnského, 1966–1997) including the Supplements to Volume I of the Dictionary of OId Church Slavonic (Dodatky k I. dílu Slovníku jazyka staroslověnského, 2016), a sample portion of the expanded new edition of the Dictionary of the Oldest Old Church Slavonic Manuscripts (Slovník nejstarších staroslověnských památek, first published in 1994), the first published volume of the Greek-Old Church Slavonic Index (Řecko-staroslověnský index, 2014), and a unique Old Church Slavonic sheet-based card index comprising over a million sheets. The project’s outputs will also come to include special software tools for the digitization of explanatory and encyclopedic multilingual dictionaries.
