Abstract

The article deals with the impact of babes and children of 14 years (both saint and alive) on the social interactions of the brethren and visitors near the worshiped sacred objects in Kyiv Dormition Caves Lavra during late 18th – the 1st decades of 20th ct. The inner conventual documents and the memoirs of the outliers became a basis of this work. The features of the interactions concerning the holy relics of the saint infants and youth in Near and Far Caves have been traced by the author. The folk and inner conventual traditions, connected with these sacred objects, have been characterized. The common forms of the communication with the donators as well as the votive’s distribution principles have been brought out by the paper. The variability in satisfaction of consimilar prayers’ needs has been detected. It has been shown by the article, how far the children differed from the rest of visitors during the direct interaction with the Caves and other brethren. There are such research prospects: the advanced study of all phases in the brethren’s interactions with children, organized in groups, as well as with the relatives of children-donators; the comparison of Lavra with the other outstanding Orthodox pilgrimage centers.
