The volume is a “bridge” dictionary spanning the lexical territory between Old Church Slavic and Modern Russian. The book provide access to seven centuries of Russian literary production. The Concise Dictionary of Old Russian is particularly strong in providing explications for words connected to Old and Middle Russian material and spiritual culture, especially ecclesiastical words, rhetorical terms, and items of foreign origin. Additionally, it is valuable for providing meanings for words that still exist in modern Russian, but that have undergone significant semantic change or specialization.
