Abstract:The medieval inscriptions had mostly a religious content, as they were calling for divine help for the names of the dead or alive people they included. The texts on the tomb stones, tomb and commemorative crosses, written in Slavonic, Romanian and Greek, in prose or in verse, include information of real interest from the historical, biographical or genealogical point of view: they offer data about the evolution of the language and the degree of erudition of the creators; they are proof of decorative art, reflect the development of certain crafts as well as the economic status of the members of the society which could afford them. The epitaphs should be analyzed from the point of view of their relation to the inscriptions carved in tomb stones. The matter acquires more importance from the perspective of the achievement of a Corpus of medieval inscriptions, as the inscription collectors had put together all the texts found in field research with others which were only mentioned in the writings of certain forerunners. The gathering, the editing and interpretation of funerary inscriptions necessitate not only the comprehension of epigraphic methods, but also knowledge on the history and culture of the epoch they come from. In order to avoid rendering the quality of an epigraphic source to certain texts which do not really have this characteristic, there is required the collaboration of the specialists in history and philology, who could see the difference between a text found in manuscript and a text carved in stone.
