Old Russian Hagiographers View of Social Relations in the XI-XIII Centuries
2019
The master's thesis is devoted to the research of ancient Russian hagiographers’ views on the social relations of ancient Rus XI-XIII. The proceedings consists of introduction, three chapters, conclusion, list of used sources and literature, as well as applications. The objective is to identify the views of ancient Russian hagiographers on the social relations of ancient Russia of the XI-XIII centuries.

The first chapter is devoted to the study of sources and historiography of the issue. In the work, we analyzed the main approaches of researchers to hagiography monuments, and revealed their informational possibilities. Analysis of the historiography demonstrates the problems and prospects for the use of hagiography of the 11th-13th centuries. The second chapter presents a holistic view of ancient Russian hagiographers on the social reality of the 11th-13th centuries. The comparative analysis of historical sources shows the ratio of ideal representations of hagiographers with social practices of the XI-XIII centuries. In particular, relations between the princes, the state and the church, the clergy and the laity, as well as family relations in ancient Russia are considered in detail. The third chapter discusses the prospects for the use of hagiographic texts in the process of studying history in school. Hagiographic texts could become a base for the in-depth study of history, preparing for competitions and contests, as well as in extracurricular activities.
