    Arrow help me with grammar

    Hello to all forum participants,

    Are these sentences sound correct in English?

    1) The scope of spiritually-enlightening events is increasingly speading within the republic.

    2) All of the studies of the publication and biographies of its author are reflected in an extensive preface of one of its latest editions (in the Latin transliteration), undertaken by a Turkish scholar .
    The London copy served as a basis for the edition, with the use of two Saint-Petersburg copies (see Chapter XXIV, Editor’s Preface).

    2) All the studies of the publication and biographies of its author are reflected [cited/quote/identified] in an extensive preface to one of the latest editions (in a Latin transliteration), edited by a Turkish scholar .

    I think I have got the gist of the second one, but am not totally sure.

    I do appreciate your help, Anglika. Thank you again.

    I had to choose between the range of and scope and I chose the latter; As an ESL learner I am unable to distinguish "the range of" and "scope", since they are very close in meaning. Could you differenciate them for me and many other ESL learners, please?
    Thanks in advance.
