Abstract

The article deals with the situation of the representatives of the nobility in the corporate organization of the clergy of Nizhyn district of Chernihiv province. On the basis of archival materials that have not yet been studied by scholars, the author investigates the property, family status of the priestly nobles. The dynamics of the size of this social group, its corporate interests are analyzed. The nobles who carried on the spiritual service thus retained the basic classes of privilege of the noble state, had the right to own serfs. In the main social and household and marital categories, they were little different from the nobility, but their income was much lower. Representatives of this group tried in every possible way to separate themselves from priests of non-noble origin, locking themselves in a separate class-professional group. The researcher came to the conclusion that the existence of priestly nobles in the lands of Left Bank Ukraine was not an exception, but was quite common, which distinguished it from the Russian provinces.
