Volume IV only. "In the seventeenth century, the Kievan Caves Monastery played a leading role in the development of a Ukrainian historical consciousness. An important aspect of that role was the linking of the monastery's medieval past and its early modern present. Several works written by inhabitants of the monastery testified not only to the site's previous saints and miracles, but also to its current holy men and wonders. This volume contains facsimile reproductions of two such works: Syl'vestr Kosov's 'Paterikon' (Kiev, 1635) , a reworking and elaboration in Polish of a text that dates back to the early centuries of Old Rus, and Afanasij Kal'nofojs'kyj's 'Teraturgema' (Kiev, 1638) , a collection of additional accounts about the monastery, including more recent miracles. Together they became a powerful medium for propagating Orthodox Ukrainian values within the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In addition, an appendex contains Johannes Herbinius's 'Religiosae Kiovensis Cryptae' (Jena 1675) , a study in Latin based on first-hand data supplied by the Archimandrite Innokentij Gizel'. In the Introduction, Paulina Lewin examines the cultural context of these works and discusses their literary significance.
