Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of the nature and image of princely power in Kievan Rus'. The formal reception of Eastern Christianity from Byzantium exposes Kievan Rus' to a political and cultural efflorescence. Christianity, the Rus' annalists and literary apologists believed, had effaced the primitive Kievan Rus' political traditions and pagan religious legacy. The period encompassing the rules of Vladimir and Jaroslav illustrates the inculcation, though unevenly, into Kievan Rus' of the Byzantine religious and political thought world.

Keywords: Eastern Christianity; Jaroslav; Kievan Rus'; Vladimir
