Chapter Summary

Skazanie o Valaamskom monastyre was written while the situation in the area of Ladoga was still calm, and the writer, probably aiming to create a basis for the establishment of the founder cult of Sergei and German, seems to have preferred concentrating on the efforts of the founders and the inner development of the monastery. Valaam was located to the side of the northwest trade routes, unlike the Solovki Monastery. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries Rukopisanie Magnusha appeared in several chronicle texts more or less in its previous form, often obviously copied from Stepennaia kniga. During the nineteenth century, the descriptions of Valaam's hardships in the borderland area were increasingly brought to the forefront of the accounts of the monastery's past.

Keywords: Skazanie o Valaamskom monastyre; Valaam
