Abstract:In this article sacral time and profane time and their portrayal in M. Sholohov’s novel ‘Quiet Flows the Don’ are examined, based on analysis of the dichotomies workdays — holidays, fast — myasoyed (when meat-eating is allowed). The article comes to the conclusion that the Church calendar has become the basis of the practical experience of Cossacks, using relative chronology.
