Abstract

The article deals with the so-called “cross-kissing books” (krestoprivodnye knigi) — lists of persons who took the oath of allegiance to the Russian tsars in the late 16th — 17th centuries. The author considers origins of the “cross-kissing books”, reasons for written fixation of persons who took the oath, their social status and circumstances, under which the oath was pledged. She observes the development of the practice to compose “cross-kissing books” during the 17th century in the context of the evolution of the ritual of the oath. She also makes a formal analysis of the design and composition of the “cross-kissing books”. She concludes that the written fixation of citizenship with its religious justification reflected the standardization of political culture and served to strengthen the state power in Russia of the 17th century.
