The handcraft of Old Russian Scribe and its products

Old Russian literature was created by nameless scribes and being mainly handwritten even after the invention of printing it knew limited repertoire of genres and was designed for a narrow layer of readers. In the 17th century, during the fundamental changes in the life of Russian society, it began to acquire modern features and finally shaped at Pushkin's period. The new Russian literature has inherited from its predecessor several features: The Church Slavonic basis of the Russian literary language; a special role in society and a special relation to the writer's work; the genre of the story; the image of the illustrated book-collection in several generally accepted formats.
