Abstract:

Object of research in this paper are theological terms in the Middle Bulgarian translation of John Chrysostom’s Of the Seraphim. The analyzed theologisms are grouped into three groups on a structural principle and the development of their semantics has been traced in the direction of expanding or narrowing. Lexemes missing in the Old Bulgarian literary language have been compared with Middle Bulgarian texts originating from the 14th century. The findings point to the role of the Greek terminological system in the formation of the Middle Bulgarian one.
