Polata knigopisnaia 4 (March 1981) publishes studies that were prepared in advance of the Symposium on the Transmission and Reception of the Early Christian Paterika, held in Nijmegen, Holland, April 6-8, 1981. The conference is reviewed in Polata knigopisnaia 6 (December 1982): 64-66.
Veder discusses the name of the Alphabetical Paterik (Alf), describes its structure and content, and provides a list of manuscript shelf marks and repositories that contain the Alf. With regards to the origin of Alf, the author notes that 'all is yet to be elucidated,' and that the first task should be to search for other manuscripts to check if the distribution of this collection is really as restricted as it appears from the list of witnesses.
