Hello. I guess you get this question a lot, but I still have to ask it. I am Russian myself (well, at least a native Russian speaker). My mother is Bulgarian, so I speak their language too. So the question is this: When Old Church Slavonic was introduced as the liturgical language in Russia, since it was from Bulgaria/Macedonia, how different was it from Russian of that time? Moreover, what language is used in Russian liturgy now? I have noticed that they use the aorist form that is normal for Bulgarian, but they still use cases, normal for Russian. I know that the questions are redundant, but I tried to make myself as clear as I could. Thank you very much in advance.
