A facsimile edition of the Apostle Fedorovych, created with the support of Violity, was presented in St. Sophia Cathedral
On February 8, at 4:00 p.m., a solemn presentation of the facsimile edition of the Lviv Apostle took place in Sofia Kyivska. Specialists of the Ukrainian Academy of Printing, the National Museum in Lviv named after Sheptytsky and the Lviv National Scientific Library of Ukraine named after Stefanyk worked on the book. The work continued for nearly two years of full-scale invasion.
The humanitarian and educational project was implemented by the "Sparrow" publishing house, the "Sofia Kyivska" National Reserve, the Voznytskyi Charitable Foundation and the Violity website. This is already the fourth first edition issued as part of the joint initiative "Returning cultural heritage to Ukraine", to which our platform is included.
"Apostol", or "Apostolic Acts and Epistles" by Ivan Fedorovych is considered the oldest precisely dated book in Ukraine - the Lviv printer and engraver worked on it from February 25, 1573 to February 15, 1574. 
The facsimile reprint of the outstanding first edition will make it more accessible to scientists and researchers, will contribute to the preservation and dissemination of the national cultural heritage.
The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy also emphasized the importance of supporting culture during the war.
"The reprint celebrates the enormous merits of the printed word and the life and creative feat of the "printer of previously unseen books" Ivan Fedorovych, a master of book art, a talented artist-engraver, engineer, foundry, East Slavic humanist and educator of the 16th century," - notes in the announcement of the event MKIP.
Soon we will talk about this unique edition in more detail, and you can watch the recording of the presentation right now on the Violity PRO collection YouTube channel.
