Vladimir chronicle 1215

Nicholas Zharkikh

Among ancient chronicles the earliest on the final date is the hypothetical Vladimir chronicle of 1215. It preserved in two copies: the first, driven to 1216, has been rewritten in the 1460-ies (in science, he is known as a chronicle of Pereyaslavl-Suzdal), the second unique in the annals of ancient Russia illuminated rewritten in the 1490s (in science it is known as Radziwill's chronicle). This copy ends in 1206, apparently, the end was lost. At the same time, in next years, 15 cent., the text very close to Radziwill's chronicle, has been rewritten in the Moscow Academic chronicle.
