Monk Nestor Who Told Russia about Itself

On November 9 the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates the natal day of Nestor the Chronicler.

      The monk spent dozens of years on writing the Russian Primary Chronicle, which determined the place of the Russian people in the world and history.

      Reverend Nestor was born and lived in Kiev in the second half of the 11th  century. At the age of 17 he became a novice of the Pechersky Monastery, the would-be Kiev Pechersk Lavra. This is where he was buried 40 years later.

      Nestor the Chronicle worked as a professional historian and a spiritual thinker.

      The Primary Chronicle is not just a chronological citation of facts and dates: it is a spiritual fathoming of the history of Russia.
