The study of Jewish presence in early Eastern Europe has been severely hindered by the ambiguity of medieval nomenclature for Old Rus'. Some scholars even went so far as to deny any connection between the medieval He-brew term Rusi(’)a(h) (in its graphic variations) and the principalities of Rus’. The present lecture examines this term and others denoting Old Rus' in medieval Jew-ish tradition and traces their historical develop-ment.
