Abstract:

This is the first comprehensive study of the origins and early uses of
Russian writing. Simon Franklin examines a wide range of writings,
from the parchment manuscripts of the Orthodox Church, through the
Novgorod birch-bark documents, to inscriptions on stone and metal. He
analyzes the texts from a variety of perspectives, and presents
fascinating insight into this crucial aspect of Russian history. The
impressive scholarship and idiosyncratic wit of the volume commend it
to specialists in Russian history and Russian literature.

Contents:

I. The Graphic Environment: 1. The written remains; 2. Scripts and
languages; 3.  The changing environment; II. Functions and Perceptions
of Writing: 4. Writing and social organisation; 5. Writing and
learning; 6. Writing and pictures; 7.  Writing and magic;
8. Afterword: on the social and cultural dynamics of writing
