The Paleya genre, an area long neglected because of its complexity, in the last decades gained more and more scholarly attention. The so called Short Chronographic Paleya, compiled in the Novgorod area in the early 15th century, is part of this tradition, linking Old Testament history, para-biblical traditions and chronography from the creation of the world to the Byzantine emperor Romanos I. Lakapenos (10th century).
For the first time, the Church Slavic text of the Short Chronographic Paleya is now made accessible to scholars who are not Slavists by a critical face-en-face edition (Church-Slavic and German) with commentary. Jewish and Christian non-canonical, canonical and chronographic texts — most of them inhereted from Byzantine sources, some preserved only in Slavic, some preserved in parallel traditions — offer a multi-faceted picture of the historical knowledge, an educated monk in Northern Russia had at that time. Building on current findings — above all on the latest studies of the Paleya tradition, made in a Russian-German-Bulgarian team — the paper analyses the models of time in the Short Chronographic Paleya, exemplifying paths of transmission and methods of choosing and compiling the sources.
