Титул Петра I в речи Джанвинченцо Гравины «В защиту римских законов» (Pro Romanis legibus)

С. 92-96.
Россиус А. А.

The present paper aims to demonstrate that the modern editions of the pamphlet by the eminent Italian philosopher and lawyer Gianvincenzo Gravina entitled In Defence of Roman Laws and addressed to Peter the Great, contain a grave error in that they  reproduce the addressee's title from the later editions of Gravina's minor writings as "The Emperor of Moscow". A thorough examination of Gravina's Mss. and the earliest editions leaves no doubt that in the original (1698) text Peter had been properly addressed as "The Tzar  of Moscow", thus conforming to contemporary political realities and attitudes.
