The article analyses the Hierarchal (Priestly) prayer, which is read before the Great Entrance, comparing three Ukrainian editions – Service Books by St. Petro Mohyla (1629, 1639) and Hierarchal Service Book by Ivan Boyarsky (1632) and the modern rite of Russian Orthodox Church – with the identical Moscow editions of the first part of the 17th century. The review covers the main features of the service and theology of the Kyiv Church during the analysed period of time. The books of Metropolitanate show the harmonious development and symbiosis of old Ukrainian texts of the Common Prayer. In turn the books of Moscow Church of the same period of time show the preservation of another different tradition of praying and theological concept. Eventually this tradition considered being the only true one in the whole canonical territory of the Russian Orthodox Church.
