Graffiti inscriptions on the walls of Old Russian temples are a valuable and still not fully studied source of information about the history of medieval Russia. Epigraphic chronicles of Yuriev Monastery in Novgorod, a curse for the killers of Andrey Bogolyubsky on the wall of the Saviour Cathedral in Pereslavl-Zalesski, records of Russian piligrims in Constantinople, Palestine and Western Europe.  

Professor of the School of Philology Alexey A. Gippius spoke about these graffitis and other texts that have been found in the recent years and shed new light on the political and cultural history of Russia in 11th--13th centuries.
