Moscow Academy chronicle

Nicholas Zharkikh

This chronicle had been published together with the Laurentian chronicle as appendix [PSRL. – Volume 1. . – L.: 1926-28. – VIII p. – 579 Col.], but modern guide said it was a separate chronicle [Dictionary of the scribes and literature of ancient Russia. 2 half 14 – 16 centuries. – L.: Science, 1989, ch. 2, p. 45 – 47]. Chronicle is preserved in a single copy of the 15th century. It consists of three parts: the first, up to 1206, is a copy of Radziwill's chronicle; the second (1205 – 1238) copied from Sophia 1st chronicles older recension; the third part (1237 – 1418) contains a reduced Notes fron the common chronicles and news about events in Rostov. In connection with such a composition we choose from it only the last part.
