Frantsysk Skaryna suggested for canonization

Euroradio

Request has been submitted to the papal nuncio, who reacted favorably.

This is what professor Adam Maldzis told Euroradio. He is a member of the International Committee for Skaryna canonization.

Maldzis: The request was initiated by a Soviet man -- Piotr Krauchanka. We handed the request to the papal nuncio, he positively reacted to this.


The educator Frantsysk Skaryna published Psalter and 22 books of the Bible with their forewords and afterwords. The language of the editions was similar to the then Belarusian.
