NounEdit

попъ (popŭm

  1. (Christianity) priest
    • from the Homily against the Bogumils, 589-591:
      бо и въ лѣности живѫтъ правовѣрьнии попове, ꙗкоже то вꙑ глаголѥте осѫждаѭще ѩ, нъ божьства не хоулѧтъ ꙗкоже вꙑ.
      bo i vŭ lěnosti živǫtŭ pravověrĭnii popove, jakože to vy glagoljete osǫždajǫšte ję, nŭ božĭstva ne xulętŭ jakože vy.
      Even if orthodox priests lead idle lives, as you say when you condemn them, still they do not blaspheme the divinity as you do.
    • from the Homily against the Bogumils, 1452-1456:
      како бо хотѧтъ христиꙗне сѧ нарицати, не имѣѭще крьстѧщиихъ ѩ поповъ, ни самого знамениꙗ брѣгѫще крьстнаѥго, ни еѵхии поповьскꙑихъ поѭще, ни поповъ чьстьнꙑ творѧще
      kako bo xotętŭ xristijane sę naricati, ne imějǫšte krĭstęštiixŭ ję popovŭ, ni samogo znamenija brěgǫšte krĭstnajego, ni eüxii popovĭskyixŭ pojǫšte, ni popovŭ čĭstĭny tvoręšte
      How can they claim to call themselves Christians, when they have no priests to baptize, when they do not make the sign of the cross, they do not write down the priests’ prayers and do not honour priests?
