The article studies a special meaning of tauto-subjective Dative Absolute — the meaning of secondary predicate, found in Russian translations of the 14th century, especially by Theodore Simonovsky. The formation of this structure in the preceding period is investigated: in Old Church Slavonic and Premongolian Russian.
