About Fr. Lavrentii Semionovich Salamatov

Fr. Lavrentii Salamatov from Attu was educated by Iakov Netsvetov on Atka. He was ordained in 1844 and when Netsvetov left the Aleutians for the Yukon, Salamatov became the parish priest for the Atka District.

Fr. Lavrentii Salamatov produced a Catechism, and translations of three of the four Gospels (St. Mark, St. Luke, St. John) in the Western-Atkan dialect. Of Father Lavrentii's work, the Gospel of St. Mark was published in a revised orthography (1959), and in its original, bilingual Russian-Aleut format (2007), together with his Catechism for the youth of Atka Island (2007). The Atkan-dialect Gospel of St. John was also electronically published (2008), along with the Gospel of St. Luke (2009) in the original bilingual format, completing the set of Fr. Lavrentii's biblical translations.

As a scholar of the Aleut language, Fr. Salamatov made unsurpassed contributions to Aleut linguistics. He is known as the most important Atkan writer.
