TREBNIK OF IGNATIY SMOLNYANIN, ITS COMPOSITION, AND PLACE IN THE SLAVIC TRADITION OF THE TREBNIK AND NOMOKANON
The article deals with the sources of the Trebnik with the Nomocanon (RNB, Pogod. 312) manuscript, which features a note about its composition by the famous ancient Russian scribe, Ignatius Smolnyanin. While his Trebnik was not widely used and his work in compiling this book has not been known until now, “Pimen’s Journey to Tsargrad”, written by Ignatius, became extremely popular in ancient Russian writing. Study of the manuscript’s composition has revealed that Ignatius used the Serbian translation of the Trebnik (made in the mid-third quarter of the 14th century), as well as the so-called Mazurinskij Nomokanon, compiled at about the same time. In addition to extracts from these books, Ignatius inserted several articles that were common at that time among the monastic milieu of Constantinople into his Trebnik.
