Novgorod’s crucial positioning between the Baltic and the north-eastern Rus principalities yielded a textual culture that was highly distinctive, especially in its use of birchbark documents, yet widely connected. This chapter examines cultural exchange and creative writing in Novgorod in the fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries by focusing on the work of various scriptoria which produced liturgical books, local chronicles and devotional literature. The paper also discusses the interaction of various literary traditions in the birchbark documents.
