Abstract

This study investigates the possible and plausible relationships between written text and visual imagery in the representation of the murder of Prince Andrej Bogoljubskij. Relevant miniatures from the late 15th-century Radziwiłł Chronicle, the oldest extant East Slavic illustrated chronicle, provide the basis for comparison with the corresponding text that ultimately derives from the tradition that underlies the Laurentian Chronicle version of the assassination.1 An analysis of the anomalies that exist between word and image leads to the consideration of evidence from various other written and visual sources, along with other documentation that raises concern about whether the Radziwiłł imagery necessarily represents an original 12th– 13th-century or late 15th-century rendering of the assassination.
