Wölkowa, Sonja: The Upper Sorbian Liturgical Agenda of Martin Cichorius


Lětopis Abstract 2013 1: Wölkowa, Sonja: The Upper Sorbian Liturgical Agenda of Martin Cichorius

At the beginning of 2010 the Sorbian Cultural Archive gained possession of a printed German liturgical agenda from the 17th Century. A formerly unknown Upper Sorbian manuscript can be found on a few pages, which had been added and bound into the volume. A book plate on the title of the print points to Martin Cichorius, Pastor of Hohenbocka near Hoyerswerda, as the possible author. In this article the linguistic characteristics of the text are described together with a demonstration of its links to other Upper Sorbian manuscripts of the time. In particular, striking parallels with the manuscripts of Johannes Cichorius can be established, which leads to the conclusion, that already by the middle of the 17th Century a tradition of Upper Sorbian writing existed in the northwestern part of Upper Lusatia.
