About the Authors
  • Examining the later twelfth- and early thirteenth-century history of the dynasty of Chernigov, this study demonstrates that the princes of Chernigov were among the most powerful in Kievan Rus'. It therefore challenges the established view of the political history of Kievan Rus'. Unlike other studies, it also examines in detail themes such as succession and inheritance, rivalries for domains, marriage alliances, the role of trade in inter-dynastic relations, nomadic incursions on Rus', and princely relations with the Church.

    • An analysis of the history of the dynasty of Chernigov in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries
    • Proves that the dynasty was far more important than historians have acknowledged, shedding light on the much-debated succession process for Kiev
    • Draws on a wide variety of sources such as such as chronicles, archaeology, coins, seals, 'graffiti' in churches, and architecture

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...all readers will be impressed with the hard work and great erudition Dimnik exhibits in this volume." Eve Levin, American Historical Review

    "This new monograph serves as the superlative reference work on the chronology of the many peoples, events, and places related to the political history of Chernigov, meticulously reconstructed by the author based on the oft-overwhelming data of the chronicles. The importance of Dimnik's book also lies in its rehabilitaion of the commonly neglected but important Chernigov dynasty." Speculum Roman K. Kovalev, College of New Jersey
