Free Courses «Vitebsk: Real and Popular History of the Native Town». «Vitebsk as the provincial capital of the Russian Empire»

On February, 23 the library hosted a regular session of the courses «Vitebsk: Real and Popular History of the Native Town» which held the title «Vitebsk as the provincial capital of the Russian Empire». During the period of XVII-XVIII centuries Vitebsk more than once was caught in the center of bloody conflicts between the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and Russian Empire, or between Uniate and Orthodox Churches . The town suffered multiple fires and devastation.

At the outset of the lecture, Denis Yurchak, Chief Specialist at the Main Department for Ideology, Culture and Youth Affairs of the Vitebsk Executive Committee, spoke about the formation and following evolution of Vitebsk province and its status during the partitions of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. He pointed out the first partition of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth had granted the Russian Empire almost the entire Vitebsk province which had become part of Pskov Governorate (the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth had preserved control over a part of Orsha district). Following there were several administrative reformation that had ended by the creation of Vitebsk and Mogilev Governorate within the bounds of Belarusian Governorate General. The lector also discussed essential features that singled out Vitebsk as a provincial capital.

Vitebsk Governorate included 12 districts. During the existence of the Governorate, 36 people succeeded each other on the post of Governor. All of them contributed to the development of Vitebsk and went down in history for different achievements. Lives and work of Vitebsk governors were the topic of presentation by local history specialist Inna Abramova.

Books recommended for those, willing to make a more complex study on the subject of the lecture, can be found at the Department of Local History Literature and Bibliography. The records of the lecture can be found at the project's community on VK and on the website of the Vitebsk Regional Library.
