St. Parasceve of Iconium and her "lost" Greek Acts
La présente contribution est consacrée au texte grec du Martyre de Ste Parascève d’Iconium. Ce récit, qu’on croyait jusqu’ici connu exclusivement par la tradition slave, est en réalité partiellement conservé dans un manuscrit grec incluant un éloge de Jean d’Eubée (VIIIe s.) dédié à sainte Parascève de Sicile (BHG 1420p). Il contient quelques épisodes du Martyre, abrégés en vue d’être insérés dans cet encomium. Le fragment retrouvé pose la question de la vénération de Ste Parascève d’Iconium à Byzance, et de l’identification exacte de la sainte figurée dans l’iconographie byzantine.
