Fedorovskaya Natal'ya Aleksandrovna
Far Eastern Federal University


Abstract. The article reveals the peculiarities of the Christian symbolics use in "Epistle about Paradise" by Novgorod archbishop Vasilii Kalika. The author shows that the phrase "twenty fields", which determines the distance to paradise, is not of metrological but rather of sacral meaning. The research of the symbolic implication of number "twenty" and the distance, measured in fields in Rus, enabled to discover that twenty fields to paradise in the Message mean a thorny spiritual path of righteous life length that is accessible only to the chosen ones.
