Преподавание грамматики в Новгородских архиерейских школах в 20—30-е гг. XVIII в. (на материале ведомостей учащихся)

Салоников Н. В., Суториус К. В.

This article is based on the analysis of students’ records and reconstructs how Church Slavonic, Greek and Latin grammar were taught at Novgorod Bishop’s School during 20-30-s of the 18th century. The authors have concluded, that multilevel system was established at “Slavonic”, Greek and Latin schools of the Bishop’s School in Novgorod, as well as at civil schools, opened on the territory of Novgorod eparchy: from studying basics of the Book of Common Prayers, Psalter, reading, writing and abecedarium to grammar, rhetoric and poetics. Church Slavonic grammar was taught prior to studying Greek or Latin grammar, but there was no hierarchy between the latter — one could study Greek grammar after Latin grammar and vice versa. It took different students different amount of time to master grammar, that depended on their learning abilities and diligence as well as on their teacher’s desire to present the material during a shorter period of time. On average, according to the information from the records, the students spent one and a half year on studying Church Slavonic grammar, and no less than three years on Greek grammar.
