Manuscript Moskva GIM Sin 383 was brought to Moscow in 1559 and was store in the library of Ivan the Terrible. There two copies of the codex were made: one is the manuscript Sin 45, the other – between 1559 and 1573 – was donated by Metropolitan Macarij to Josifo-Volokolamskij monastery, where the monk Evtimij Turkov copied it before 1573. Both manuscripts kept at the Josifo-Volokolamskij monastery are now lost. We know that in 1582 Ivan the Terrible used the manuscript Sin 383 (or Sin 45) in the dispute against Antonio Possevino.
