Book chapter

Крещение руси в исторических сочинениях XVI–XVII вв.

С. 80-102.

The Rus'ian historians who wrote in Muscovy and Poland in the 16-17th centuries proposed different interpretations of the narrative on the Baptizm of Rus' under Vladimir the Saint (ca. 988). The author of the article studies these interpretatins and concludes that in 16th Muscovy this event was used to legitimize a God's chosen status of the ruling dynasty and Russia as a orthodox land. In the 17th century the interpretation of the Kievan "Synopsis" was accepted which demonstrated in the narrative the origin of the common all-Russian identity.
