Ivan’s Hundred was an association of merchants, who gathered around the Church of Saint John the Baptist on Opoka (Церковь Ивана Предтечи на Опоках) in Veliky Novgorod. The guild consisted of merchants, who traded wax wholesale. The starostas (heads) of the Ivan’s Hundred were permanent members of the Commerce Court of Novgorod and ruling Council of the Novgorod Feudal Republic. They also took part in signing trade agreements. The rights and responsibilities of the members of the Ivan’s Hundred were stated in the so-called Charter (Устав) and Manuscript (Рукописание) of knyaz Vsevolod Mstislavich.
