      Hello everyone,

      Forgive the cross-posting, but I'm trying to identify the "old
      chronicle ...from the thirteenth century" mentioned in Russian
      Herbalism by Igor Vilevich Zevin pertaining to the discovery in
      Novgorod of "banya's mold" as a cure for infected wounds.

      Zevin has an annoying habit of throwing in such references all throught
      the book without any footnote to the original source. Can anyone help
      fill in the gap(s)?

      TIA,

        Privet--

        At a guess, he's referring to the Primary Chronicle, or at least the
        Hypatian Codex, which contains a copy of the Primary Chronicle (dating
        from ~900 CE to ~1117 CE), as well as the Kievan Chronicle (up to
        ~1200 CE), and the Galitsko-Volynskij Chronicle (through the 13th
        Century). A possible alternative is the Laurentian Codex, which
        starts with the Chronicle, then goes through the Suzdal Chronicles,
        into the 15th Century.

        Either set can be found online in the Krotov Library, but you may need
        to brush up on your Russian, if not your Church Slavonic.
        URL for the Hypatian Codex is:

        And for the Laurentian:

        Hope this helps... Good luck! Let us know what you find out!
