The Church of the Myrrh-Bearers opens another page in the history of Novgorod and its architecture. The designer of the church, Ivan Syrkov, was the progenitor of Moscow's largest merchant dynasty, which is repeatedly mentioned in the Moscow and Novgorod annals of the 16th century. The courtyard of the Syrkov family was obviously located close to the Yaroslav Dvorishche. A three-story stone church, of which two bottom floors were used as the commissioner's warehouses, was constructed nearby. The top floor accommodated three churches: the main ones and two side churches. In 1536 the Church of the Myrrh-Bearers housed the first heated church in the city, a phenomenon earlier known only in monastery churches.
