The article is devoted to the “Rules for monks” who are part of the Kormčaya and of Old Russian miscellanies. The earliest copies of the Rules are contained in a miscellany of the late 12th – early 13th century (Russian State Library, collection of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, № 12) and in the Novgorod Kormčaya of 1280 (GIM, Synodal Collection, № 132). The different redactions of the Rules are determined and the general principles according to which the Rules were reworked in the Novgorod Kormčaya are defined. The article also presents the long history of this text in Old Russian miscellanies.
