For sociological research, the current part of the synodikons is of some interest.

The social terminology of synodikons is very limited. Objectively, we can distinguish groups of princes, monks and partly – white clergy.

In general, for sociology, the synodikons are given, it seems, not very abundant food. Of course, I’m not a sociologist, and these my observations can only be the first steps towards using these synodikons for sociological research. One can think that more advanced methods of research will yield great results.
