The linguistic, content and critical analysis of the Povest’ vremennych let means an “evergreen” topic for the East Slavic historiography. The tradition of different origins and the combination of the text partly come from the natural quality of the East European region, upon which the aspects of choice of the Christian chroniclers were built. In the quantitative aspect, the more detailed narratives rely on either earlier notes or oral tradition, yet they do not complete the whole of the chronology the chronicler pays attention to. In the author’s opinion, Sylvester, the abbey of the monastery of Vydubiči, created the dynastic legitimization in the person of Vladimir Monomah and in a way determinant for his descendants with mixing the different traditions.
