Summary/Abstract: The Menaion has a profound value in the history of Slavic languages. Previous literature applies linguistic-textological methodology to reveal a textological typology of Menaia. On the contrary, this article uses data-driven methods to classify these Old Slavic manuscripts. A vector space model is established to analyse ten Menaia manuscripts represented by a common text fragment. Analysis of various distance measures reveals similarity and differences among the analyzed manuscripts.
