Легенда о призвании варягов в историографии XVI–XVII вв.: от средневековых мифов к раннемодерным

С. 326-344.

The author studies how the famous Old-Russian 'The Legend of the Calling-in of the Varangians" was edited and reworked in the Russian and Ukrainian historical works of the 16-17th centuries. He concludes that the early medieval mythes of the original text (in the Nestor Chronicle) were creatively developed in the Early Modern Time. In the 16th century the "dynastic myth" was in demand, and in the 17th century it was the "ethnogenetic myth" which became topical.
