The paper is devoted to analysing the reception in imperial Russia of the “Sermon in the Miasopustnaia Week on the End of the World”, an essay by the fifteenth-century Christian writer Pseudo- Hippolytus. This sermon reflects one of the basic points of Christian tradition – eschatology. This essay, along with other eschatological compositions, has enriched and complemented Christian representations of the Last Judgement. Pseudo- Hippolytus’ sermon was extremely popular among literate Russian Old Believer circles, and indeed they created an illustrated variant. This paper studies the miniatures of this manuscript kept in the Laboratory for Archaeographical Studies at the Ural Federal University. After examining the early Christian compositions that were at the basis of Pseudo- Hippolytus’ work, the author subjects the iconography of the manuscript to comparative analysis. Here she considers other Russian depictions of the Last Judgement in icon painting frescos, and other manuscripts. Finally, the author examines iconographic elements imported into Russian book culture from the West.
