The compound was originally the site of a [[Slavic paganism|pagan]] burial ground upon which the first bishop of Novgorod, [[Ioakim Korsunianin]], built the [[Saint Sophia Cathedral in Novgorod|Cathedral of Holy Wisdom]] upon his arrival in the area in 989 or so. Thus the compound was and remained largely an ecclesiastical site, although many Novgorodian [[boyars]] built their houses in the southern part of the [[Detinets]].<ref>S. V.
