It was supported by many of Kiev's princes and boyars and soon the monastery became the center of religious and cultural life in Kievan Rusʹ. Many works were written there such as Povistʹ vremennykh lit and the Kievan Cave Patericon, in addition to the translating and illuminating of books. The monastery was sacked several times between 1096 and 1240, but each time it was rebuilt, new churches were added and the underground tunnels of caves and catacombs were expanded. After the Tatars burnt it down in 1482 it was again rebuilt and the monastic complex was designated a lavra. In 1615 the first printing press Kiev Cave Monastery Press was established. In 1631 the Kievan Cave Monastery School opened and in 1632 the school merged with the Kiev Epiphany Brotherhood School to form a college which was later named the Kievan Mohyla Academy. In 1688 the lavra became directly subordinate to the Moscow patriarch. Russification of the monastery began in 1720 and increased with time. In 1921-1922 Soviet authorities confiscated many of its relics and historical objects. Many of these monuments and collections became part of the Lavra Museum of Religious Cults and Way of Life. In 1926 the Soviet Ukrainian government closed down the monastery completely and turned its grounds into a state museum-preserve--the All-Ukrainian Museum Quarter (Horodok). By 1934 the Horodok was abolished and many of its collections were transferred to new museums in Kiev. After WWII the lavra preserve was restored and renamed the Kievan Cave Historical-Cultural Preserve)
