O.A. Abelentseva. Clergy of the Assumption Tikhvin Monastery in 1623–1633: structure, number and their dynamics, payment system // Petersburg Historical Journal, no. 3, 2022, pp. 7–20
The article is devoted to the study of the clergy of the Assumption Tikhvin Monastery in 1623–1633, its structure, number and their dynamics. 1623–1633 was a difficult period of restoration of the monastery after the events of the Time of Troubles and the fire of 1623, which completely destroyed wooden buildings and damaged stone temples. Based on the data of the complex of the monastic Books for Recording of Expenses, the peculiarities of fixing payments to clerics in them are revealed. The personal composition of the clergy, the duration of the stay of hieromonks, hierodeacons, canonarchs and other clergymen in its composition are determined. It is established that the monastic authorities, experiencing difficulties in forming the clergy, hired tonsured monks from other monasteries. Since 1625, secular persons have appeared in the monastery’s church choirs.
