3D-Modelling Helps Read Ancient Russian Inscriptions of the 12th and 13th Centuries

Using 3D-modelling, researchers of HSE and the Institute of Slavic Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) have restored and deciphered an ancient literary monument of North-Eastern Ancient Rus — inscriptions about the murder of Prince Andrey Bogolyubsky written in 1175–1176 on a wall of the cathedral in Pereslavl-Zalessky. The study was published in Slověne = Словѣне. International Journal of Slavic Studies.

‘I Am Who I Am, Only with a Magic Wand…’

Oksana Osadchaya, a blind sophomore in the undergraduate philology programme, has developed a version of braille for Old Russian texts. Oksana recently defended her thesis on the subject. Together with her academic advisor Alexey Gippius, Oksana met with the HSE News Service to discuss her work, as well as the opportunities that she has opened up for blind researchers who study texts in Old Russian, Old Slavonic, and Old Church Slavonic.

HSE Researcher Investigates Unique List Naming Killers of a 12-century Russian Prince

During restoration work to the Spaso Preobrazhensky Cathedral in Pereslavl-Zalessky, an ancient Russian city 130km from Moscow, researchers found several ancient graffiti markings on the walls. They included some writing from the C12th about the murder of Prince Andrey Bogolyubsky, and a list of his killers. The Russian Academy of Sciences Institute of Archaeology has said that this is the earliest written record in North-East Rus. Moscow specialists, HSE Professor Alexey Gippius and Savva Mikheev from the Institute of Slavic Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences made the find and are currently examining it.
