Research project: Writing down the Wrath between the Sons of Abraham: The Image of the Steppe in Medieval Russian Chronicles

My research project aims at exploring the mental imagery of the Russian medieval chronicles, especially in their presentation of the nomad thread posed against Kievan Rus' from the Steppe. This, according to my hypothesis was the major force defining the inner relationship of the recorded events of the Primary Chronicle, written at the very beginning of the 12th century.
