The sticheron Uşile pocăinţei after the Gospel of Matins during the Lent period, by Filothei sin Agăi Jipei in the exegesis of Mihalache Bucureşteanul



The argument for the present paper is the discovery, in one manuscript from Cernica monastery, of the exegesis in exegetic middle-byzantine for the stichera after the Gospel of Matins during the Lent period, by Mihalache Bucureşteanul. The original troparia in Romanian belong to Filothei sin Agăi Jipei and are written in late middle-byzantine notation. Our research aims at offering answers to certain questions such as: what was the manner of performing in Filothei’s time, i.e. the end of the 18th century? Could Mihalache hold the key to the decoding of certain chants by Filothei? Could be possible a reconstruction of the original melody, as a result of comparatively research on theseis?
