Absract: The article focuses on fundamentals of the Christian faith as depicted in Mikhail Kheraskov’s epic poem Vladimir and imparted by the protagonist’s teachers (Varangian martyrs, Idolem, philosopher Kir). The article explores their plot-driving sermons (which spur the “rebirth” of the protagonist), a series of ruminations on various aspects of the new faith, as well as different links to historical sources of the poem (the annals, the works of historians of the 18th century), some of which are defined in this article.
