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

День воскреше́ния (Denʹ voskrešénija) (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).
