The state was an historically important, the contact area between the Arab East and Western Europe, Byzantium and Scandinavia. This led to its rapid entry into the European historical and cultural community. Kievan Rus was a kind of center of Slavic culture. Literary and archaeological sources confirm the existence of the Eastern Slavs writing prior to the adoption of Christianity. The penetration of Christianity in Russia resulted in the emergence of the Eastern Slavs writing, which required state and church. This script was called “Cyrillic”.

In addition, the adoption of Christianity in its Eastern Orthodox variant facilitated the spread of literacy, as opposed to Catholic worship in the Orthodox church held their own language. The establishment of schools and distributing literature were associated with social and cultural requirements of the ancient society. Through cultural ties with Byzantium, in Rus are becoming popular such disciplines, as philosophy, dialectic, grammar.

The author concludes that the formation of Kievan Rus has the following features: – cultural principles; – openness to the world (active absorbing, loans and advances and the use of the knowledge of other nations); – despite the dominant church educational environment characterized by a secular education component; – finally and the most importantly in our opinion - clearly seen European orientation and attachment to Christian values.
