Тимофеева Е. Д. Балладные традиции в ранней поэзии Н. С. Гумилева // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия III: Филология. 2019. Вып. 58. С. 11-23. DOI: 10.15382/sturIII201958.11-23
This article makes an attempt to trace signs of Romanticism in early poetry by Nikolai Gumilev and identify those ballad features that were specifi c to his poems already according to his contemporaries’ opinion. The main source of Romantic motifs for Gumilev came to be ballads by Vasily Zhukovsky. He was very familiar with them not only because of the syllabi of educational institutions, but also from anthologies of Russian and European literature that were in his reading circle in early years. The article identifi es the texts and themes of the poet of the 19th century that were most important to Gumilev and analyses their employment both in the fi rst collections of the leader of the Acmeists (The Way of Conquistadors and Romantic Flowers) and in his more mature books. The article examines the levels of borrowing of the plots, themes and single formulae as well as the transformation of these techniques in the course of time. Besides, the article traces the evolution of Gumilev’s attitude to the motifs in question and analyses their role in the context of his literary work and the contemporary literary process, namely the interaction of these plots with prominent topics of Symbolist poetry of this period, as well as his polemic with Zhukovsky (the poet important to the modernists) and with the established literary tradition.

This article studies the presence of West-European engraved sheets with Biblical themes in the territory of Russia of the 17th — 19th centuries. The infl uence of West-European engravings already manifested itself as early as the 16th century and increased considerably in the 17th century. Books and engravings from Europe clearly influenced the masters from both the capital and provinces. The engraving, which is a cheaper and more aff ordable type of visual art, begins to be used to decorate living rooms, as images for prayer, to remind of the events of the Scripture. Despite the generally negative attitude of the church, the European engravings continued to spread in Russia and by the 18th century occupied a stable place in the household of various social groups. Collections of engravings began to be gathered; the sheets were used as “examples”, i.e. study material; were used as relayers of unaccessible painted originals. In the 19th century, the demand became even greater. Alongside original European engravings of “spiritual” content, cheap engravings and lithographies came to be widespread, these were only remotely similar to the primary sources. Illustrated edition based on the cycles of European engravings with Biblical themes were printed. The article pays special attention to the factors that supported or prevented the spread and use of West-European engravings in the teritory of Russia during the historical period in question.

Тимофеева Т. П. Письма Н. П. Сычева А. Д. Варганову (1955–1959 годы) // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия V: Вопросы истории и теории христианского искусства. 2020. Вып. 39. С. 173-186. DOI: 10.15382/sturV202039.173-186
The article makes public eight letters of Nikolai Petrovich Sychov (1883–1964), the prominent historian of ancient Russian art, specialist in the theory and practice of restoration, to the outstanding architect and restorer of monuments in Suzdal, director of Suzdal Museum, Alexei Varganov (1905–1977). Previously, Sychov after many years of unlawful repression (Gulag and life in a small town on the Volga), worked in Vladimir and Suzdal for ten years. In the mid-1950s he was allowed to live in Moscow, from where he sent the letters to his friend. The introduction refers to the study of I. Kyzlasova (see her article in this issue of the journal), which describes the professional and human scale of Sychov’s personality and provides a brief bibliography on Varganov, who is less known in the scientifi c world. According to the memoirs of Varganov’s daughter, he called Sychov a “teacher”. In 1927–1930s, Varganov studied at the Institute of Art History in Leningrad, where Sychov taught; they could make an acquaintance there. This article outlines the content of the letters, i.e. a discussion of the attempt of one pseudoscientist to appropriate the results of the works of Vladimir Restoration Workshop, a request to show Suzdal to students of Moscow University, current events in Sychev’s life. A separate message is addressed to Varganov’s son Alik (Alexei), with some drawings: “Grandpa Kolya” is crying because of the boy’s poor school marks and dancing because of his excellent marks. Special attention should be paid to a letter in which Sychov writes about a remarkable fi nd, an inscription on the inner wall of the tent-shaped roof of St. Basil’s Cathedral in the Red Square (Sychov was one of the leading fi gures in its restoration). As a result, the exact date of completion of this unique monument of the 16th century was established. There is one more very interesting letter with a story about the life of the Russian Museum in Leningrad in 1921–1926, when Sychov was a director there. The letters are made public for the fi rst time; they show not only friendly relations with the addressee, but also (which is very important) disprove the orally expressed allegation about Varganov’s involvement in the third arrest of Sychev which took place in Vladimir in 1948.
