Old Slavic – Konstantinos Vetochnikov (Collège de France, Orient & Méditerranée)

Old Slavic (glottocode: chur1257) was the language of chancery, religious worship, and literature among the Eastern Slavs populating areas between the Balkans (Bulgarians and Serbs) and Muscovite Russia, including the Romanian and Moldavian lands, during the Middle Ages. This language belongs to the Slavic languages, which are a branch of the Indo-European family, specifically the Balto-Slavic group, and is derived from the Southern Slavic languages subdivision. Subsequently, it was superseded by other more modern forms. For the purpose of Orthodox worship, it was supplanted by Church Slavonic.
