Description of the Goritsky Monastery

Goritsky Monastery is located in Pereslavl- Zalessky, Yaroslavl Oblast in Russia. It was constructed in 14th century by Ivan I of Moscow Kalita, althoug today the oldest parts of the current ensemble date to 17-18th centuries. In the Middle Ages the monastery owned numerous villages, including Bolshie Sokolniki, Veslevo, Veskovo, Voskresenskoe, Dubnevo, Yermov, Ilinskoe, Kruzhkovo, Maurino, Nila, Pertsevo, Rodioncevo, Slavitino, Solomidino, Chasnicy, Chentsi, Chernitskoye on Oselka, Chernitskoye on Shahe, Yaropoletsi and others. Unfortunately, the historical information about this monastery is very brief, fragmentary and unclear, since the monastery's archive was destroyed in an accidental fire on June 12, 1722. All the information about it was obtained from various secondary sources. Here is the information that is available about the monastery:

 

he time of the foundation of the Assumption Goritsky Bogoroditsky (Mother of God) Monastery dates back to 1362. It is mistakenly believed that in the Goritsky Monastery the Monk Dmitry Prilutsky took his oath. But this could not be the case, since by the time of the founding of the monastery, he was already the hegumen, of the Nikolsky Monastery in the same Pereslavl.

 

In 1744 the Pereslavl Uspensky Goritsky Monastery was closed and turned into the estate of the Bishop of Pereslavl. In 1919 the Pereslavl-Zalessky Historical Museum was established within its territory.
