Древнерусские глаголические надписи-граффити XI–XII веков из Новгорода: № 30–55
The paper continues in the vein of similar research on Glagolitic graffiti from 2012 and 2015.
It presents 26 newly discovered inscriptions from Novgorod, all dating to the 11th and 12th
The graffiti are found on the walls of the 1145–1150 St. Sophia Cathedral, the Church of the
Annunciation at Gorodische (founded in 1103 and demolished in the 14th century), and St.
George’s Cathedral at Yuriev Monastery, built in 1119–1130. The most significant findings,
including the longest Old Russian Glagolitic inscription, come from new excavations of the
Church of the Annunciation.
The paper contains preliminary notes, a catalogue of the inscriptions with photos, tracings, and
brief comments, a correction to a previously published inscription, notes on orthography and
language, palaeography, and typology of the inscriptions.
