Petrine Era Timeline Timeline Description: The reign of Peter the Great (1682 - 1725) had such a great impact on Russia's history that it became known as the Petrine era. [1] The museum's displays give an idea of the traditions of bread consumption in Russia, recounting the history of the baking and flour confectionery business and trade in the country in general and in St. Petersburg in particular, from the Petrine era to the present day. [1] Although recent scholarship has modified this view somewhat, pointing out the antecedents of his reforms and the unchanged reality of Russia as a state built on the pillars of agriculture, elite service, and servile labor, few would challenge the defining character of the Petrine era for Russia's subsequent sense of its own modernity. [1]

Bushkovitch 2001 frames the author’s discussion of Peter himself and of Petrine reforms with an understanding of the clan-based functioning of the Russian courts before and during the Petrine era. [1] GENERAL INFO PROKOPOVICH, FEOFAN (1681 – 1736), was the most influential ecclesiastical official of Russia's Petrine era, who rose to the position of archbishop of Novgorod and vice president of the new Holy Synod, from which he exercised immense authority on behalf of Peter the Great's reforms. [1]

One is hard pushed to find more than fleeting reference to his achievements in modern accounts of Petrine Russia (both Russian and Western). [1] This paper assesses the frequency and character of urban poverty in Petrine Russia on the basis of twelve population inventories carried out in ten central Russian cities between 1710 and 1720. [1]

Although we can only guess at population dynamics in Russia of this era, there is little evidence for rapid population gains like those which elsewhere helped inaugurate more conservative definitions of poverty to spare the public purse.(12) But if Petrine Russia endured no great dearth in this decade, there was more or less constant war until the Peace of Nystadt was signed in 1721. [1] Previously Russia celebrated the New Year on September 1 with the Gregorian calendar, but now the nation celebrates on January 1." ("Petrine Era Timeline." [1]

During the reign of Peter the Great, from 1689 until his decease in 1725, the manner in which Russians perceived themselves changed drastically. [1]

The shift to educated monks occurred during Peter the Great's reign, when the Church began to require above all skilled administrators to accomplish the new tasks it had been assigned during the Petrine era. [1] James Cracraft extends the definition of literature beyond belles lettres and private writings, in which the Petrine era is relatively poor, to 'verbal culture,' in which it is rich, thereby offering a much wider range of material from a crucial age of reform and allowing exploration of such phenomena as the vocabulary of political power. [1]

The author of seminal works on visual culture in the Petrine era, Cracraft now turns his attention to the changes that occurred in Russian verbal culture." --BOOK JACKET. [2] The reign of Peter I of Russia (between the years 1682 and 1689 and continuing until 1725) and its impact on Russian development are among the most studied and most controversial topics in early modern Russian history.

[1] Domenico was born in Astano, near Lugano, in the Italian-speaking Ticino, subsequently, as he was working in Denmark, he was offered by Peter I of Russia, among other architects, to design buildings in the new Russian capital city, St. Petersburg.

[1] Michael officially reigned as Tsar, though his father, the Patriarch Philaret initially held the real power, however, Michaels descendents would rule Russia, first as Tsars and later as Emperors, until the Russian Revolution of 1917.

[1] This Muscovite period of the great Boyar families and Patriarchs, in which a constant element is the resistence of an Old Russia party to the friends of Western Culture, is followed, from the founding of Petersburg in 1703, by the pseudomorphosis which forced the primitive Russian soul into the alien mould, first of Baroque, then of the Enlightenment, and then of the nineteenth century. [1] Richardson, Harris, and Coxe, within four years of the same age, were all visitors to Catherine's Russia during the first flowering of European culture among the Russian nobility and the new maturity of Russian diplomatic influence in the European balance. [1] What, then, can these texts tell us about the limits of literate medicine in Russia? The prefaces give us the history of an assumption—the assumption, made by the compilers of these texts, that there were literate Russians without medical training who could and would acquire, keep, read, and use Western European medical texts. [1] Across the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries various so-called satirical leechbooks appeared in Russia, 77 texts that used the format and language of medical recipe books to mock the content and worth of their serious counterparts ( leechbook being a term for a kind of medical recipe book). 78 The satirical leechbooks have commonly been viewed as a part of Russian xenophobia in their overtly negative attitude toward Western Europeans and Western European medicine. [1] Rhubarb had been traded using land routes across Eurasia--originating in the Chinese territories, and moved by Bukharan merchants to Russia, whence it was then sent on to Western Europe--since at least the middle of the sixteenth century. 43 Due to the high demand for rhubarb in Western Europe, the Russian state had a stake in finding a domestic source for it. [1] Medical texts were imported into Russia from Western Europe, and a number were translated into Russian, in particular for the use of the Russian students of the Apothecary Chancery.

[1] During Catherines short reign, Menshikov was practically the absolute ruler of Russia and he promoted himself to the unprecedented rank of Generalissimus, and was the only Russian to bear a ducal title. [1] Many of the trends of the 18th century Russia reached their height in the reign of Catherine the Great: the degradation of the serfs to virtual slavery, the triumph of the nobility in the "golden age of the Russian aristocracy" thanks to Catherine's 1785 Charter of Nobility, the expansion of Russian territory to include the Crimean Peninsula and access to the Straits.

[1] If foreign merchants chose to naturalize in Russia that is what increasing numbers of them were doing starting in the late seventeenth century or if Russian-born merchants took over from the foreigners, would that automatically make Russian foreign trade "supply-driven"? Of course not. [1] Very few customs records, so important to trade studies, are extant for Russia; not a single seventeenth-century custom book for the vital early modern Russian port of Arkhangelsk survives. 5 Such documentary problems shift the study of the Russian medical drug trade in a specific direction, towards the records of the court medical department, the Apothecary Chancery.

[1] I will not undertake, from an impulse of my good wishes, to determine what articles Russia should be cautious of importing; but those of the produce of Great Britain are either essentially necessary to her, or such as she can never suffer by: I speak not of the major part of them, for I think not one article, EVEN OUR ALE, but tends to the good of the Russians; not to mention the great advantages to Russia of the Riga and Narva trade with Great Britain and Ireland.

[1] As the head of state, he approved the Russian mobilization of August 1914, which marked the first fatal step into World War I. Catherine’s main political goal was to strengthen autocracy in Russia, while at the same time decreasing the influence of the aristocracy and the guardsmen to its absolute minimum. [1] During the first two years of Harris's residence, France first mediated a Russian dispute with Turkey in favor of the former and then assisted Russia to arbitrate the Bavarian Succession between Prussia and Austria, both increasing her European prestige and establishing a precedent for inter ference in German affairs, but Harris continued to deny the advantage of the French connection.

[1] This consisted in the abetting of a Russian naval expedition against the Turks in the Mediterranean, and it appears extraordinary today that British diplomacy which, for the past century and a half, has been occupied in keeping Russia out of the Mediterranean by supporting the Ottoman Empire should have so materially contributed to the contrary issue in 1770.

[1] Three regions in particular developed relations with the Russian State: England, the German lands and the Netherlands. 12 Partly this group of nations was determined by geography: all three groups had access to the North Sea and the Baltic, through which they could reach the Russian ports of St Nicholas, and later Arkhangelsk, in the White Sea, and the Baltic ports of Reval and Narva, through which goods and travellers could also reach Russia. [1] Speaking on the subject of this prize, a concrete evidence of the oriental dreams which may have clouded Napoleon's vision of the stark realities of the Russian campaign, Alexander later had a remarkable conversation with Sir Robert, clearly foreshadowing a source of uneasiness between England and Russia in the century to come.
