UKRAINIAN ECCLESIASTICAL DIPLOMATIC MISSIONS DISPATCHED TO RUSSIA FROM THE SECOND HALF OF THE 17th CENTURY TO THE EARLY 18th CENTURY

S Kagamlyk

Abstract


The article analyses the activity of Ukrainian church embassies in the Russian
state in the second half of the XVII – early XVIII century, based on the materials of two leading
Kyiv cells – the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra and the Mohyla Academy at the Kyiv Brotherhood Monastery,
which had special privileges. The main goal for the Kyiv-Pechersk monasteryʼs leadership
was to preserve the title of the laurel and the right stauropigy, as well as the canonical submission
to the Patriarch of Constantinople at that time. The priority of Kyiv Mohyla Academy was
a confirmation its status as a higher educational institute and its material support by the Russian
government. To defend these rights in conditions of Russian centralism was the main task of
special monastic commissioners, who performed the duties of church advocates, defenders of
their monasteries. The article concludes that due to the high level of education, organizational
skills and diplomatic trust of Ukrainian church messengers, they managed to achieve significant
success in defending the main interests of Kyiv cells – the special status for Pechersk Monastery
and the right of a higher educational institute for the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. The mission of
Ukrainian ambassadors of the 60-ies of the XVII century had an important church-political significance.
They had forced the leaders of Russian state to realize the rejection of Ukrainian
clergy of the Moscow protectorate and detained the subordination of the Kyiv Metropolitanate
for twenty years.
