Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version

Compare the text of the novel 1237 – 1238-s in following four chronicles: Sophia 1st chronicles older recension (S1LSI, 1418), Novgorod Karamzin chronicle (NKL, 1428), 4th Novgorod Chronicle (N4L, 1447) and Bil1L. Table contain 37 rows, 4 copies are compared.

The thing is quite obvious: NKL and N4L form a close pair, which is quite significantly different from S1LSI. Bil1L shows a rather close relationship with the couple and the independence of the characteristic pecularities S1LSI.
