"Beneshevich’s excerpts"

Nicholas Zharkikh

General conclusions from our consideration of "Beneshevich’s excerpts" are as follows:

1, there is a lack of objective data (filigree, radiocarbon analysis) for dating the Vatican Code No. 840 and its individual parts, in particular, "Excerpts".

2, none of the hypotheses put forward to explain the origin of the "Excerpts", including my own, does not explain the totality of the facts that require explanation.

3, Gedimin mentioned in the "Excerpts" Gedimin was not the Grand Duke of Lithuania, and his brother Theodor was the Kyiv prince.
