On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Kuteyinsky Monastery, an international scientific and practical conference "Kuteinsky readings" was held in Orsha on September 15.
The National Library of Belarus was one of the co-organizers of the event and was represented by three speakers. The leading bibliographer of the information and analytical department Nina Litvinko told at the conference about the "original edition of the printing house in Lyubche (from the funds of the Russian State Library)”. The head of the sector of the Research Department of Book Studies, Tatiana Kornilova, presented a report on the topic “The Trifologion of 1647 in the fund of the National Library of Belarus”, and the leading editor of the publishing department Natalia Anapreenko developed the theme ”the creative heritage of Maxim Vashchenko: traditions and innovation" online.
The topic of old printed publications turned out to be extremely popular and interested those present. On the same day, among other solemn events, collector Vladimir Likhodedov donated to the monastery the original edition of the Trifologion (1647).
We can say that book publishing in Kutein continues today as well. So, within the framework of the conference, the presentation of the book "The History of the Holy Epiphany Kuteinsky Monastery (1623-1918)" by monk Abraham (Naumchik) took place. The monograph consists of three sections: about the history of the Kuteinsky monastery as part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the history of the monastery as the part of the Russian Empire, separately about the architecture and the shrine of this place. The book is interesting not only because of the past of the spiritual monastery, but also for the vividly presented picture of several historical epochs.
Many intellectuals, scientists, religious personalities and just interested people gathered together on this day to witness and continue the good traditions of spirituality and culture.
The material was prepared by Nina Litvinka, the leading bibliographer of the information and analytical department.
