Summary/Abstract: The study is dedicated to the rhythmic structures in the Old Bulgarian glagolitic manuscripts Psalterium Sinaiticum, Codex Marianus and Codex Assemanius. The results are given in three classifications of the isocolic patterns in the Old Bulgarian translation of Psalter and Gospel. The rhythmic models are devided into three groups: simple columns (one-, two-, three-, four-, five-, six-, seven-, eight-, nine-, ten- accented columns), recurrent series and series in frame. Isocolic parallels between the Greek texts and the Old Bulgarian translations are drawn. A conclusion is made that the brothers SS Cyril and Methodius had known the isocolic structures in the Byzantine literature and had preserved them in their translations from Greek into Old Bulgarian language and that the Old Bulgarian and Middle Bulgarian men of letters had adopted in their works the rhythmic structures of the Byzantine rhetorics and poetics.
