Languages of publication
In the book Historical Sketches of Folk Literature in Art F.I. Buslaev developed the idea that „getting closer to their primitive source, the elements of literature and art enter each other; and sometimes the author becomes an illustrator of his manuscript; and so a literary historian often through miniatures decorating the manuscript understands the idea of the text before it opens in its lines”. The validity of these lines becomes apparent when we compare the passage from the Notes by ibn Fadlan to Henryk Siemiradzki’s Obsequies of the Noble Rus in Bulgar, located in the State Historical Museum in Moscow.
