20 euro Silver coin dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the Francysk Skaryna’s Ruthenian Bible, PROOF.
The exact number of the published volumes is unknown. While he might even have published the whole of the Scripture, only 23 books survive to this day.
Skaryna‘s translation of the Ruthenian Bible was mostly based on a Venetian edition of the Holy Scripture published in 1506 in Czech.
It had been translated from the Vulgate by the moderate post-Hussites. By virtue of its high polygraphic quality and the excellent language of the translation, this Bible, for a long time, had been used by more than just the Protestants.
