Old Russian Manuscripts of the Pushkinskii Dom (IRLAN)

In 1994 the Department of Defense made a long-term loan of microfilming equipment to the Institute of Russian Literature--Pushkin House in St. Petersburg, Russia in order to make available on microfilm medieval Russian manuscripts not hitherto accessible in the United States and to assist the internal preservation and conservation program of the Institute. A small committee of scholars prepared a list of medieval Russian manuscripts to be filmed under the project, which is coordinated by the Library of Congress.

The Pushkin House maintains one of the richest collections of medieval Russian manuscripts in the world. The manuscripts selected for filming by the Library of Congress represent those that are of greatest scholarly value from a linguistic, historical, religious, and artistic point of view.

Researchers may view this microfilm in the European Reading Room. A guide to the reel contents is presented below.

Catalog record for the collection.
