Languages of publication
The main centre of the diocese of Turov and Pinsk in the XVI century was Pinsk. In the XVI century Pinsk became the local economic-politic metropolis. The greatest services to the development of the Church life were rendered by the rulers of the principalities: Ann Svidrigellova Horodecka, Semen, Maria, and Vasyl Olelkovich, Ivan, Fiodor, and Helen Yaroslavovich, Semen and George Holshansky, and Vasyl Fedorovich Ostrogsky and Constantine Ivanovich Ostrogsky. Thanks to their foundations and bequests more than 16 orthodox parishes and a few monasteries were founded. They were also the patrons of many iconographers, cantors, copyists and others artists.
