L’or, les esclaves, les femmes et les paladins dans l’Histoire de Kazan

image of Russian History

“War and Chivalry in the Land of the Tatars: Gold, Slaves, Women and Warriors in the Kazanskaia istoriia”. Kazanskaia istoria (circa 1564–1565?) is a first try at a historical romance in the Russian literary tradition. Inspired by the conquest of Kazan by Russian troops (1552), it enriches the factual narrative with literary themes such as the fabulous and dangerous wealth of the Tatar world: gold, silk, slaves and women. It also expresses a chivalry code and a sense of honor transcending the divide between Christian Russians and Muslim Tatars. These themes will be extensively developed in later Russian literature.
