Volume II. The Hagiography of Kievan Rus' .

Volume II. Translated with an Introduction by Paul Hollingsworth. Among the finest products of early Ukrainian literature were the Lives of the first Rus' saints, including Ol'ga, Volodimer, Boris, Gleb, Feodosij of the Caves Monastery, and Avraamij of Smolensk. Drawing on Byzantine, Church Slavonic, and Latin literary traditions, the Rus' hagiographers fashioned religious narratives that were at once traditional and tailored for a specifically Rus' audience. This book presents translations of polemical works written during this period by Meletij Smotryc'kyj, one of the leading spokesmen for Ruthenian renewal.
