Beginnings of Russian emigration: Moskwicini in 15th–17th century Poland
A lecture by Dr. hab. Konstantin Erusalimskiy within the cycle of Open lectures at the Academy of Heritage

Konstantin Erusalimskiy – lives and works in Moscow, connected with the Russian State University of Humanities. His areas of study are the culture of Eastern Europe in the modern period, historical demography, cultural anthropology, Auxiliary sciences of modern history as well as modern and contemporary historiography. Dr. hab. Konstantin Erusalimskiy is in Krakow as a scholar of the 6th edition of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage programme Thesaurus Poloniae.
In his lecture he will present the Russian emigration as an important phe-nomenon of European culture, he will define its size, origin, identity and mentality, its impact on the society of Poland and other European countries in the period covered. Several generations of émigrés slowly merged with European life, kept the memory of their origin, reacted to the fluctuating and often hostile views of the Europeans on “the most barbarian nation” and even took part in formulating these views, stereotypes. What were the connotations of the terms “Moskwicin”, “Moschus”, “Moskal”? Does this identity have anything to do with the later “Moskals” and “Russians”? Is there a link between early modern and late modern emigration? What is the legacy of those Moskwicini?
