ЖИТІЀ СТ҃А́ГѠ Є҆Ѵⷢ҇ЛІ́СТА МАТѲЕ́А,

ѿ сѡфро́нїа.

Матѳе́й, и҆́же и҆ леѵі́й, а҆пⷭ҇лъ ѿ мытаре́й, во і҆ꙋде́и пе́рвый вѣ́ровавшихъ ра́ди ѿ ѡ҆брѣ́занїѧ, є҆ѵⷢ҇лїе хрⷭ҇то́во писмены̀ и҆ глаго́лы є҆вре́йскими сочинѝ, невѣ́домомꙋ по си́хъ во є҆́ллинское сїѐ прело́жшꙋ: є҆вре́йское же да́же до дне́сь є҆́сть въ книгохрани́тельницѣ кесарі́йской, ѿ памфі́ла мꙋ́ченика тща́тельнѡ ᲂу҆стро́ившейсѧ. Мнѣ́ же ѿ назѡре́ѡвъ, въ вері́и сѷрі́йстѣй сїѐ ᲂу҆потреби́вшихъ, во́лѧ подаде́сѧ сегѡ̀ преписа́нїѧ: и҆́мже є҆́сть и҆звѣ́стно вѣ́дати, ꙗ҆́кѡ и҆дѣ́же бы є҆ѵⷢ҇лі́стъ и҆лѝ ѿ лица̀ своегѡ̀, и҆лѝ ѿ лица̀ гдⷭ҇а на́шегѡ і҆и҃са хрⷭ҇та̀ и҆ сп҃са, свидѣ́тєльства ᲂу҆потреби́лъ дре́внихъ писа́нїй, не послѣ́довати во́ли седми́десѧтъ толко́вникѡвъ, но є҆вре́йской: ѿ ни́хже два̀ сꙋ́ть ѻ҆́на: И҆з̾ є҆гѵ́пта воззва́хъ сн҃а моего̀: и҆, Ꙗ҆́кѡ назѡре́й нарече́тсѧ.

Description

There are already a number of fonts in Belarus in which the authors reinterpret the work of Frantsysk Skaryna. The goal of this project was to make a fairly accurate digital reconstruction of the letters used in the books of the Bible published by the Belarusian first printer. Of course, not without tolerances: the then quality of paper, letter engraving, printing technology do not give a clear idea of ​​the original idea of ​​†‹вЂ‹ characters. Therefore the Skaryna 2017 font was defined as the font that Francis Skaryna would have made at the time for modern digital technology. We hope that in the modern version there is an idea of ​​the author, the humanistic spirit of the sixteenth century and added a little precision inherent in digital sharia. In the downloaded archive you will find two versions of the font: one with archaic versions of characters, no kerning pairs (the closest to the original version) and a modern version with more familiar graphemes of some characters. Of course, we want to make the font more accurate and would be grateful for comments and suggestions. The font license allows you to use the font for free. We will be grateful for sent usage examples.
