Domostroi: Rules for Russian Households in the Time of Ivan the Terrible
Carolyn Johnston Pouncy (ed) (tr)
The “Domostroi,” which literally means household order, is a 16th-century Russian guide to life for noblemen, an exhaustive inventory of homilies, rules & recipes ranging from how to instill obedience in a wife to instructions for making mead & storing cabbage. It is one of the few sources on the social history & secular life of Russia in the time of Ivan the Terrible. The “Domostroi” depicts a society that prized religious orthodoxy, reliance on tradition, & absolute subordination of the individual to the family & the state. Specific instructions tell how to arrange hay, visit monasteries, distill vodka, treat servants, entertain clergy, cut out robes, & carry out many other daily activities. Informative intro. “First complete English translation.” Illus.
