Metropolitan Kliment Smoliatich and His Epistles

The present article analyzes the two epistles of Kliment Smoliatich, the metropolitan of Kiev, written between 1147 and 1154, and sent to Smolensk. The addressees of the epistles were Foma (Thomas) the Presbyter and Prince Rostislav of Smolensk. The epistle to Foma is well known, whereas the epistle to Rostislav is not preserved and is known only through reconstruction. It is argued that both epistles were provoked by the ecclesiastical struggle created by the uncanonical installment of Kliment Smoliatich as metropolitan.
