Abstract: This article describes the features of the language of the Moscow period, characterized by a bilingual language situation. The function of the literary language was performed by the Slavic and Central Russian language, the language of business writing, influenced both by folk-spoken and Slavic languages. It is a question of the peculiarities of bilingualism, the influence of Hesychasm and the protective attitude to books and language. It is told about changes in the language situation of the middle of the 17th century, about grammatical and genre innovations. The conclusion is drawn that the Slavonic language remained the literary language of Moscow Rus at the end of the 17th century.

Key words: literary language, bilingualism, grammatical features, hesychasm, language tradition, archaization.
