Summary/Abstract: The authors present the Russian culture of the First Polish Republic – both Orthodox and Uniate – in a dynamic relationship with the Polish–Latin culture and the processes taking place in the Orthodox Church after the fall of the Byzantine Empire, and in the face of the growing power of Moscow. They do not perceive the Russian culture as different and question legitimacy of the civilization barrier concept. This culture, as part of the heritage of the multinational Polish-Lithuanian state, enriches the culture of Central and Eastern Europe and the entire Byzantine-Slavic area.
