Mazurinsky chronicler

Nicholas Zharkikh

Mazurinsky chronicler preserved in a single copy of the late 17th century. Description of the events it has been driven to 1682. It is used after the publication of 1988 [Complete Collection of Russian Chronicles. Chroniclers of the last quarter of the 17th century. – M.: Science, 1988, Vol. 31. – 263 p.] in the last part – from the middle of the 16th century. (For earlier times it takes abbreviated excerpt from the Russian chronicles, diluted with inserts from Stryjkovsky and "Synopsis"). Very unpleasant feature of the chronicler is constant confusion between the dates of the Alexandrian era (+5500 years) and Constantinople (+5508 years).
