The text Skazaniia o dare Shakha Abbasa does not give any details to indicate its authorship. S.N. Gukhman (‘Dokumentalʾnoeʾ skazanie’, pp. 255-6) has argued that the context of its creation, its subject and its extensive use of biblical citations suggest that it was created by a member of the Muscovite clergy with close ties to the court, although he does not suggest any specific individual.
