The list, called "Archbishops of Rostov", is located in VS on the p. 15 – 16.
The scheme of his analysis is very similar to the Novgorod archbishops. The main difference is that the list of Rostov bishops is only rarely found in reference articles, and often in the main text of the chronicles under 6904 (1396).
The following sources were used to compile the comparative table:
NKL – a list in article 6904 (1396) year in the Novgorod Karamzin Chronicle [PSRL, 2002, vol. 42, p. 165]. This list is given on the occasion of the appointment of Gregory as the archbishop of Rostov instead of the deceased Fedor Simonovsky. According to the account of the NKL, Grigory was the 35th Rostov bishop.
N4L – a list in article 6904 (1396) year in the Novgorod Fourth Chronicle [PSRL, 1925, Vol. 4, no. 2, p. 381]. The list of NKL is extended here: 35, Gregory; 36, Dionysius; 37, Ephraim. But due to a misunderstanding Gregory was called the 38th bishop – as if there was one more Gregory after Ephraim. In fact, it was about appointing the 35th Gregory.
EL – a list in article 6904 (1396) year in the Ermolin Chronicle [PSRL, 1910, vol. 23, p. 135]. Here Gregory is called the 36th bishop (that’s the trouble with these numbers!). The list has some gaps and a "miracle worker" addition.
TipL – a list in article 6904 (1396) year in the Typographical Chronicle [PSRL, 1921, vol. 24, p. 165]. Here Gregory is called the 35th bishop ("this Grigory" – which was discussed in the article). The last named "this Tikhon" (1489 – 1503) – who was a bishop at the time of writing the chronicle.
MS1492 – a list in article 6904 (1396) in the Moscow codex of 1492 [PSRL, 1949, Vol. 25, p. 226]. Here Gregory is called the 35th bishop. The list repeats NKL (that is, it is not extended until the time of writing the chronicle), only adds "miracle workers".
MS1493 – a list attached as an introductory article to the copy Bel 1512 of the Moscow codex of 1493 [PSRL, 1962, Vol. 27, p. 296]. Exactly the same list is added at the beginning of the Simeon Chronicle [PSRL, 1913, vol. 18, p. 22]. There are only two differences: Joasaph (No. 44) is not named prince; Tikhon (No. 45) is named Malyshkin. This Tikhon ruled in 1489-1503, that is, at the end of the text MZ1493.
L72SI – the list in article 6904 (1396) in the annals of the 72nd language of the senior recension (1497) [PSRL, 1962, Vol. 28, p. 88]. Here Gregory is called the 39th bishop. The list contains some gaps from EL, but they do not quite match.
L72MI – a list in article 6904 (1396) in the annals of the 72nd language of the junior recension (1518) [PSRL, 1962, Vol. 28, p. 252]. Here Gregory is called the 35th bishop. This list is all the same on EL, with the restoration of the second Cyril, missed in EL.
Chr – a list attached to the Chronograph edition of 1512 from the manuscript of 1538 [PSRL, 1911, vol. 22, part 1, p. 464]. This list is very similar to SimL, only extended to one name – Vassian (1506-1515).
NLD – a list in Article 6904 (1396) in the Novgorod Chronicle of Dubrovsky (1539) [PSRL, 2004, vol. 43, p. 158]. Here Gregory is called the 35th bishop, as in N4L, and just like in N4L instead of Ioann put Iona.
VL – a list in article 6904 (1396) year in the Resurrection Chronicle (1541) [PSRL, 1859, vol. 8, p. 69]. Here Gregory is called the 35th bishop. This list almost accurately reproduces MZ1493 – L72SI, only Theodosius (No. 41) has jumped here into place.
VS – The Vvedensky synodikon, 1654.
And what about Rostov bishops in the VS? In terms of the composition of the persons, this is the fourth edition, but this list has been rewritten very casually, with a mass of gaps.
