The moral charter of home life – “Domostroy”, recorded in the 16th century by the Novgorod priest Sylvester, didom the Russian woman to recluse. In pre -Petrine Rus’, noble people did not show their wives and daughters to outsiders. And only the most friendly attitude of the owner of the house to the guest sometimes dissolved the doors of the female tower. And then a kiss was performed. With a cup of wine, festively dressed, the mistress came out. Having sipped wine and bowing, she treated the respected guest. The owner bowed and the guest to kiss his wife-household. At the end of the assignment rite, the guest was given with expensive scarves.
