Summary/Abstract: The aim of this article is to examine the use of infinitives in Sinai Paterikon, a manuscript which was copied from an Old Slavic manuscript in the Old Russian language area in the 11th and 12th centuries. The author mainly concentrates on the use of infinitives 1) in compounds with auxiliaries, 2) as various parts of the sentence, and 3) in the syntactic construction “dativus cum infinitivo”, which was used for shortening various clauses. Besides, the author also studies other constructions with infinitives such as “accusativus cum infinitivo” and “nominativus cum infinitivo”.
