Chronicler of Pereyaslavl-Suzdal (1200-1212)

Nicholas Zharkikh

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.

"Chronicle of Pereyaslavl-Suzdal" was preserved in two copies – as part of a collection of historical works dated by filigree to the 1460s (Archival copy [PSRL, 1995, vol. 41]) and (partially) in the Nicephorus copy also from the 1460s. March and ultra-March dates are confused in the chronology, so its analysis is the subject of independent studies [N. G. Berezhkov Chronology of the Russian Chronicles. – M.: 1963, p. 92 – 96]. Therefore, the date of the last entry is not determined very confidently – 1214, 1215 or even 1216.
