Digital Catalogue of the Stockholm Smolensk Archives

Research project Due to close contacts between Sweden and its neighbours, Swedish libraries and archives contain several valuable collections of old Slavic documents, some of which have no analogues in their respective countries of origin. One such collection, the so-called Smolensk archives from the years 1609-1611, written entirely in Russian, is preserved in the National Archives in Stockholm.

The goal of the project is to produce a digital catalogue of the Russian seventeenth-century documents in the Stockholm Smolensk archives. The materials include c. 1000 leaves in c. 75 scrolls.
