Конфессиональные особенности представлений о культе святых в некоторых полемических текстах Московской Руси конца XV-XVI вв.

С. 28-56.

This article has analyzed several Russian polemical and hagiographical texts of the XVIth – early XVIIth centuries in order to identify concepts, terms and notions in which the holiness of saints and meaning of saints’ cult are expressed; article concludes that the Byzantine doctrine of theosis served as basis for “theorizing” about saints; besides, merits and outward activity is not held as precondition for “being saint”; holiness is thus regarded as a sort of charisma.
