Article type
Annotation The proposed article is the first in a series introducing the regional features of the formation of mixed families in Dauria (now the Trans-Baikal Territory) at the stage of its accession to the Russian state. The most colorful example of intra-ethnic consolidation and interethnic integration was the ancient city of Nerchinsk. Turning to the pages of his history, we acquire a unique opportunity to deeply and comprehensively present the process of the formation of the multi-ethnic structure of the Trans-Baikal society. In this article, we restrict ourselves to the justification that interethnic marriages widespread in the second half of the 17th–18th centuries were an important factor in stabilizing interethnic relations in the region. The use of historical, sociological and local history explanatory approaches for an in-depth analysis of the process of formation of a peculiar socio-cultural environment of Transbaikalia made it possible to turn to widely known facts of regional history and use them as convincing evidence. Matrimonial inventories of parishes of the Nerchinsk Ascension Church and Trinity Cathedral found in the GAZK funds, including The Assumption Church of the Nerchinsky Holy Assumption Monastery provided a unique opportunity to trace the specifics of the formation of the process of interethnic relationship that has become characteristic of the Trans-Baikal Territory.
Key words Dauria, Cossack pioneers, tolerance, ethno-national and inter-religious loyalty, interethnic relations, ethno-contact zone, nationally mixed families
