The book is a definitive documentation of a significant segment of the Greek manuscript legacy now kept at the National Library in Sofia, Bulgaria. It provides comprehensive scholarly descriptions of thousands of texts, major and minor, that served the liturgical needs and helped form the mind-set of the Orthodox monastic community in the Balkans.

Dorotei Getov is a classical philologist-turned-student of Greek manuscripts, currently employed by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences at its Institute for Literature as Senior Researcher in Byzantine Literature. He has published several catalogues of Greek manuscripts kept in Bulgarian libraries as well as the editiones principes of the so-called Florilegium Mosquense and of a collection of scholia to the Byzantine legal corpus known as Basilika.
