Abstract

The article shows the publications of the Cossack Chronicles of Eyewitness, H. Hrabianka’s and S. Velychko’s during ХVІІІ–ХХІ centuries. During the study historical and comparative method and method of analysis and synthesis were used. The distinctive phenomenon of Ukrainian historiography of the late seventeenth – and early eighteenth-century is the so-called «Cossack chronicles». These works are products of the culture of the Cossack chancellerists of the Hetmanate, which were the new forms of history writing. Cossack chronicles deals with the political concept social elite of ХVІІІ century and cultural ideals of the Baroque period. The article contains the analysis of the publications these historical-literary compositions, their correspondence to the academic, scientific-critical or popular type of publications. The ways and methods of text transmission, which were used in the publication of the Cossack «chronicles» taking into account in edition practice of their editorial offices and numerous copies are disclosed. The scientific support of publications of Cossack «chronicles», are characterized. The article contains the analysis of the presence of comments, notes, name and geographical indications, the dictionary of obsolete words, archeographic, paleographic and textological study of the compositions, as well as information about the author’s personality in the texts of Cossack «chronicles» . Today there are several editions of Cossack Chronicles. But these publications are not intended for historians, but for a wide range of readers and do not qualify for a scientific status. Because these texts are reprints or photographic reproduction of the earlier editions of the second half of the nineteenth – early twentieth century. The publication 1971 of the Chronicle of the Eyewitness is the most qualitative publication from all the Cossack chronicles. This text is given in comparison with the corresponding fragments of the remaining copies of the composition, and this work has the obligatory attributes of academic type of the publication. Therefore modern Ukrainian historical science is in urgent need of a full-fledged scientific study and reprinting of the Cossack Chronicles of Eyewitness, H. Hrabianka’s and S. Velychko’s which was important historical narratives and compositions of the political thought of the eighteenth century.
