Abstract:

The Confession Rank (Chin Pokayaniya) for nuns, published in 1874, is known only because of its eleventh question with the list of pagan deities Rod and rozhantsi, Perun, Hars and Mokosh, which, so far in the Slavic studies, have been recognized as Old Russian. The study proves that this manuscript is taken from an epitheme collection of the Bulgarian church and dates back to the time of the double faith of the Bulgarians, at the end of the 9th century, and consequently the deities are from the Old Bulgarian pagan pantheon.

Keywords:

confession, epitheme, double faith, Old Bulgarian, pagan pantheon.
