Abstract

The reconstructions of the Povest’ vremmenyx let made by L. Müller and D. Ostrowski have prompted discussion of issues related to textual criticism. I begin the article by summarizing the state of the debate and then, responding to Ostrowski’s defense of his position, I present additional evidence to support my claims that the version of the Povest’ vremennyx let in the Novgorod First Chronicle is independent of the archetype of its six full copies and that the Hypatian branch of the Povest’ vremennyx let is linked to the Radziwiłł branch by contamination. Questions concerning the nature of the contamination are also discussed: what direction it operated in and which representatives of the two branches of the tradition were involved in it.

К реконструкции оригинала Повести временных лет: продолжение дискуссии

Аннотация

Статья является продолжением дискуссии по вопросам критики текста Повести временных лет, развернувшейся после выхода в свет немецкого перевода Л. Мюллера и издания Д. Островского. Полемизируя с Островским, автор приводит новые доводы в пользу независимости текста Новгородской 1 летописи младшего извода от архетипа полных списков Повести временных лет и наличия контаминации, связывающей ипатьевскую ветвь рукописной традиции с радзивиловской. Уточняются параметры контаминации: ее направление и то, какие из представителей двух ветвей были в нее вовлечены.
