Tatyana Kenko: The history of Spiridon Sobol and printing press manufactured by him at Kuteynski Monastery located initially in The Grand Duchy of Litva and later in the 17th century within lands under the rule of the Russian Duchy (abstract) (web-magazine “Kultura. Natsyja”, issue 27, April 2021, 163-171, www.sakavik.net)

Among attractions of the ancient city of Orsha one will find Kuteynski Monastery, also termed as Kuteynskaya Lavra. One of the most notable initiatives of the monastery’s staff was the production of a printing press and its subsequent printing of Orthodox Church materials. This institution became particularly well-known following its printing of Spiridon Sobol’s “Bukvar” (reading primer), which in world catalogues is noted not only as an educational publication, but also as an innovative methodology in a teaching people to read. The first primer came from the region of Orsha.
