Nikon Chronicle

Nicholas Zharkikh

Of all the later chronicles, only the Nikon one (1520) gives another text of the PVK.

The narrative of the Nikon Chronicle, although it looks more extensive than the previous ones, clearly shows that the author did not have any additional information about this event, in addition to the known chronicles.

The story of Vasily Kalika in the version of the Nikon Chronicle is interesting only from the point of view of the author’s literary technique. It does not give new factual information.
