From воскресе́ние ‎(voskresénije), воскреше́ние ‎(voskrešénije) (resurrection, of Christ).

День воскрешения ‎(Denʹ voskrešenija) (The Day of Resurrection) means a holiday, a nonworking day, and in this meaning it replaced the word неде́ля ‎(nedélja) which had been used for Sunday before.

Compare with Old East Slavic and Old Church Slavonic въскрьсениѥ ‎(vŭskrĭsenije), въскрѣшениѥ ‎(vŭskrěšenije).

Because of the prefix вос- ‎(vos-) (rather than вс- ‎(vs-)), it was an adoption from Old Church Slavonic (not Old Slavonic).
