Abstract

JEAN BLANKOFF (Brussels, Belgium) ENCOLPIA AND PHYLACTERIES IN OLD RUSSIA , Thirty years ago in the West, Russian art was almost unheard of, not only by cultured individuals, but even by Slavic and Byzantine scholars. A handful of Russian emigres (N. Kondakov, P. Muratov,, and A. Grabar, among others) wrote articles that attracted the attention of a limited circle of specialists, . Byzantine scholars for'the most part. ' In Russia itself, N. Sychev, A. Anisimov, D. Ainalov, I. Grabar', V. Laza- rev, M. Alpatov, and a few others wrote a series of fundamental and excellent articles which are now being republished. These early studies dealt essen- tially with restoration work, church architecture, monumental painting ("fres- ' coes"), and icons, which were then being discovered by art historians. Ap- plied arts, such as religious embroidery (various types of sacerdotal orna- ments, epitaphia, and so on), liturgical silverware, small carved icons, encol- pia and phylacteries, and so on, rarely attracted any interest. The past thirty years have been witness to immense progress in the study of Old Russian architecture, and painting.
