Abstrakt. Using the sacral plastic of miniature shapes, which survived from the Kyiv Rus times, the author seeks the roots of Ukrainian traditional religiosity, namely the reasons and mechanisms of spreading of cults of saints. The article illuminates the emersion and entrance of religious attributes into «davnorusskyi» everyday life, and it is established, that during early Christianity paternal was the main rule while choosing saint portrayals, and the main use of religious symbolics was defensive. It is this aspect of perception of the images of Saints that subsequently led to the development of domestic icons.

Keywords: objects of personal piety, sacral plastic, pectoral icon, Christian symbolic, iconography, domestic icon.
