Absract: The Prayer of St. Gregory and the Prayer of Confession of Sins from the Yaroslavl Prayerbook give evidence of an existence of intensive Czech-Russian culture contacts in the 11th century.

Absract: In this paper we recreate the situation around the appearance of the introductory article to the fi rst volume of the Anniversary (6th) edition of Complete works of F.M. Dostoevsky in 14 volumes (1904-1906). No author (D. Merezhkovsky, S. Smirnova (Sazonova) and S. Bulgakov) seemed to be able to meet intention of the publisher A. Dostoevsky to get a fi tting biographical sketch of the life and work of the great writer. Yet, the debate around the introductory article revealed that a serious scholarly biography of the writer was highly expected - the demand, made obvious by the critique of Volzhsky (A. Glinka) and A. Fomin.

The analysis of the cross-textual links helps the author to discover three coexistent and contrasting symbolist levels/worlds in the cycle, and to identify their axiological status.

The fi rst Russian translation of The Sun - the monograph written by American astronomer Charles Augustus Young (1834-1908) - was published in 1914; the next print run, in 1923, was 3000 copies: the book appeared as part of the series "Nature and Culture" (in Russian, "Priroda i Kultura"). It's note worthy that in his novel Chevengur Andrei P. Platonov pictures building of a 'communist' society, which relies exclusively on solar technologies. This article offers a hypothesis that Ch.A. Young's book might have served as a source for Platonov's novel - particularly for its allusive level.
