Sophia 3rd chronicle

Nicholas Zharkikh

Tsarsky's copy of Sophia 1st chronicle was published separately [Complete Collection of Russian Chronicles. Vol. 39. Sophia First Chronicle, copy I. Tsarsky. – M.: Nauka, 1994. – 209 p.]. Since this latest chronicle driven to 1508, ie 90 years later Sophia 1st chronicle older recension, it should be called the Sophia 1st chronicles 4th recension. I suggest to it a simplified name Sophia third chronicle. This chronicle is particularly important because it has been preserved in the original, and was later the basis for the Resurrection Chronicle.

Full text of excerpts from this chronicle available in ukrainian / russian versions of article.
