Book chapter

Князь и бояре: клятва верности и право отъезда

С. 148-269.

The author studies the rituals and rules in the relationship of kings and nobles in medieval Rus'. The key issues are if the nobles swore an oath to the kings when entreing their service and if the nolbles exercised the so called "right of departure" when leaving the kings' service. The author's approach is comparative. He uses the evidence on the vassal rituals and norms in medieval countries of Europe, first of all, in Scadinavia in the 11-13th centuries.
