Запись Шестоднева 1374 г. как источник по исторической топографии Пскова

С. 105-115.
Гиппиус А. А., Яковлева Е. А., Круглова Т. В.

The phrase refers to the Pskovites’ public discussion of a change in the route of a new stone wall as compared to the old wooden one. The changes concerned the section of the wall near the New Ascension female Monastery. The pragmatic approach not involving additional costs took over. The monastery remained outside the city walls on the Posad.1
