The Sermon of Novgorod Archbishop Ilya: Sources Research, Philological Commentary and Translation
This year paper examines the Sermon written by Novgorod Archbishop Ilia in 1166 which contains recommendations and instructions for priests, advices concerning their everyday life, the warnings against some sins clarifications on account of conducting of some sacraments. The aim of the work is to translate the text carefully from Old Russian to Modern Russian and to propose commentary on the text, including historical and linguistic commentary, minding the references to other texts of the Old Russian corpus, including the texts of Holy Scripure. Although the Sermon is an interesting and oroginal text, its translation still does not exist and there is not any valuable work on Ilia`s text.
