applied arts, Byzantine traditions, culture, decorative, Galicia-Volyn principality, historically original region


The boundaries of the Galician and Volyn lands in different historical epochs changed significantly: they widely included adjacent territories, then they outlined the limits of only one historically original region. This article examines the decorative and applied art of the Galicia-Volyn principality during its stay in the Kyiv state and is associated with the dominance of Byzantine traditions, which were later enriched with their own characteristics. This phenomenon determined the uniqueness of the culture of Galicia and Volyn. The work is intended to give a slice of the current state of the study of the issue, including the authors' own findings and attributions made during their direct activity in this scientific field.
