Tamara I. Lipich, Vasiliy V. Lipich, Tatiana M. Penskaya, Vitaly V. Penskoy, Roman V. Shilishpanov, Irina A. Strahova


The article examines some special aspects of the centralized Russian state formation as the part of the Pan - European process of the early modern state formation. The researchers focus on the problem of the Tsar’s discourse as on the problem of the total claims the true Orthodox monarch should comply with. The Orthodox Church took the active part in the formation of this "discourse", and the compliance with the requirements of it guaranteed to the top authority loyalty of its people and readiness to carry out its requirements. The Church gave Grand Dukes the powerful tool when applying secular practices of legitimation.
