Visualization of the Princes` Authority in Ancient Rus (XI-First Third of the XIII Centuries)
Historical Knowledge
(Master’s programme)
2017
The dissertation is dedicated to the problem of Princes’ authority visualization in Pre-Mongol Rus’. The study is aimed to restore visual aspects of Princes’ authority. The author distinguishes two basic ways of the latter’s representation, namely, ceremonies of Princes’ daily existence and the complex of Princes’ insignia. After the analysis of existing historiography and comparison of the scientists’ hypotheses with the data, provided by sources, the author draws a conclusion that some aspects of Princes’ ceremonies and the insignia complex sometimes can be interpreted in a wrong way. Therefore the author attempts to liquidate these mistakes to some extent.

The survey is conducted with the use of a wide range of various sources, such as litopys texts, ancient Russian coins and stamps, miniatures of illuminated manuscripts.
