The Enina Apostle is a
Cyrillic manuscript from the 10th and 11th century. It is a
transcription of an earlier translation of a liturgical manuscript,
made by Saints Cyril and Methodius, of 39 leaves containing the
readings from the 35th Sunday after Pentecost until the vespers of
Holy Saturday, and from September 1 to October 31. The manuscript came
from the Holy Petka Tarnovsak church in the village of Enina and is
preserved in the National Library in Sofia.
