Popis The aim of the paper is to uncover the narrative techniques and features specific to the so-called Daniel Sketiotes Dossier, a group of tales written down by an anonymous author at the end of the 6th century. I try to demonstrate that, in contrast to other similar texts, the Daniel Sketiotes Dossier has several prevailing narrative elements: a tendency to minimise narratorial comments and explications; efforts to present events vividly; and involvement of the audience in the story. I aim to pinpoint the techniques used for creating such an impression and the functions served by such a set of techniques and suggest that the literary technique of the Daniel Sketiotes Dossier is unusual within the genre, especially concerning the systematic preference for the showing mode of presentation.
