Teoctist Sushicki (1919)

Nicholas Zharkikh

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version

Sushicki T. Western-Russian chronicles as a literary monuments. – Kyiv: 1930 – 404 p.

Thus, in general, the book F. Sushicki quite weak. The root of his error – incorrect classification of texts, inherited from the previous researchers. Author has not shown adequate courage to discard the previous works and do it all himself. He did not use all the resources necessary to determine the history of texts. Some right conclusions obtained in the analysis, demanded a radical revision of the entire structure of whole sections, but such restructuring was nowhere be performed. Therefore, the mass of correct observations and interesting indications is not shown in the system.
