Abstract
According to Shumilov-Popov (Volkov)’s version, the burial of Stephen Razin’s ashes (namely those of his head, arms and legs) took place shortly after February 1676 in the ancient Tatar cemetery situated in the territory of the present M. Gorkij Park of Culture and Rest at Moscow (see Voprosy istorii. 1961. № 8. P. 208—212). This hypothesis is partly confirmed by some new publications of archival sources. One of them was found by L. Z. Mil’gotina (1973) — it is a record about the funeral of Stephen Razin’s “body” near the Tatar cemetery. This information had been inserted in a mid-XVIIIth century copy of Petr Zolotarev’s chronicle whose original text was written in the second half of XVIIth century. Another source, very important for our study, was found by A. V. Antonov in 1996 and firstly published by V. S. Kusov in 1997. It is a draft or map of Moscow suburban territory southward the Kalužskij gate. This precious plan was drawn in 1683. Its scale is not very certain, but here we see the designation of the Tatar cemetery and a legend above it: “Kladbišža Tatarskie”. The object lay some 400—500 metres south-west of the Kalužskij gate, precisely in the northern part of the present Park’s territory, near the east side of the square basin.
