Восточная Европа в древности и средневековье: XXX Юбилейные Чтения памяти члена-корреспондента АН СССР Владимира Терентьевича Пашуто
The book includes materials of the 30th V.T. Pashuto memorial readings timed to the 100th anniversary of V.T. Pashuto’s births.
“The Sermon on Christian and Latin Faith” stands out notably against many other “anti-latin” polemic texts created or copied in Old’ Rus after the Schism of 1054. Both the level of author’s xenophoby and and a specific composition (where much more is said about the danger of contacts with the “wrong-believers” than about the essence of their “errors”) need to be explained. The comparison of the text of the Sermon with the cronicler’s report about the intervention of Hungarian, Polish and Czech rulers in the dynastic conflict between princes Izyaslav Mstislavich and Yury Dolgorukiy allows us to assert, that the creation of the discussed text was directly connected with the struggle for Kiev in 1149–1151.
