H-EarlySlavic is a forum for the discussion of Slavic history, literature, and culture before 1725. It is focused primarily on East Slavic (Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian) regions, though West and South Slavic areas will also be considered.

In memoriam Klaus Zernack

It deeply saddens me to inform you that Professor Klaus Zernack passed away on November 3, 2017, aged 86. Although he was a distinguished expert of the early Slavic period, his work is probably not as much known in the Anglophone world as it deserves. His influence on scholars of Eastern Europe and especially on East-Central Europe, and on establishing and maintaining institutionalized research in our field in Germany can hardly be overestimated.
