Annotation: The article discusses two options for describing the events of March 14, 1613, in Kostroma, which marked the beginning of the calling of M.F. Romanov to become Tsar Michael of Russia. The first version is based on the “Tale of Avraamy Palitsyn” and speaks of two processions – the embassy of the Assembly of Moscow Land, which set off from the suburb village of Selishche, and Kostroma clergy and citizens, who left the city proper; uniting near the Monastery of St. Hypatius of Gangra; the participants of those processions went to the mother and son the Romanovs. The second version is based on the text of the New Chronicler – Moscow embassy came from the village of Selishche to Kostroma Kremlin and only then, having taken from the Assumption Cathedral the Icon of the Mother of God dedicated to Saint Theodore Stratelates, went to Hypatian Monastery. Arguments are given in favour of the second option, implying the personal interest of Avraamy Palitsyn, cellarer of the St. Sergius Trinity Monastery, in hushing up the role played by the said image of Our Most Holy Lady in begging Miсhael to become the tsar. It is noted that an objective description of the events of March 14, 1613, is of particular topicality as the cathedral of Kostroma Kremlin is being under reconstruction.
