Day 3 was dedicated to historical memory from the Late period. Dr. Andrei Prohin (National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History in Chisinau), presented a manuscript from 1448 copied by Gavril Uric from the Neamt Monastery in the lecture "A vision of the history of salvation in a Slavic manuscript from the Neamt Monastery (1448)". He highlighted the vision on the history of the manuscript written only a
few years before the falling of the Empire, in connection with the events in that period and its reception.



Dr. Anna Adashinskaia (Russian Academy of Sciences) discussed how commemoration of the dead creates and unites a community in the paper, "Private Commemorations in Late Medieval Balkans: Was Commemoration a Commodity?" She inquired about how commemoration of the deceased creates the external dimension of memory, and how the number, variety and sequence of the commemorative rituals expanded significantly during the Late Medieval period, this tendency reflecting a growing demand of private donors who were willing to pay (in cash, lands, artistic objects) for their names to be remembered in course of as many services as possible.
