Abstract: The book is about a little-known text of the old homiletic tradition ― a laudable speech on the occasion of The Intercession of Our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary, created by an unknown word master. The publication on the manuscripts from the archive of the Moscow theological Academy reproduced the text of the speech in the original orthography with a translation into modern Russian language and textual and cultural commentary, and then examines the content of the speech, reveals its ideological and artistic connection with the Hesychasm of St. Gregory Palamas and the literary style of “weaving of words”, the place and time of speech creation based on a wide range of facts from the history of existence of the feast of Intercession of the Theotokos in medieval Russia.
