Иноконфессиональные общины - история, взаимодействие, судьбы

On April 21 at St. Petersburg Institute of History of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of History Vadim Ibragimovich Musaev presented his new monograph “Different Christian communities in the North-West of Russia in the 1900s – 1930s”, in which all the history of main non-Orthodox confessional communities of St. Petersburg/Petrograd/Leningrad and in general in the North-West on the basis of materials from previously unpublished documentary sources was studied. The meeting was held as part of the program “Discussions in the Likhachev House” , which offers a scientific or non-fiction discussion of research and topics that have not lost their urgency.

The issue of the meeting attracted the attention of journalists, the museum community and the Christian denominations of St. Petersburg – representatives of the Lutheran communities (Finnish, Estonian, Latvian), St. Petersburg Orthodox Theological Academy, the Museum of the History of St. Petersburg and the Museum of the History of Religion took part in the discussion. Questions were asked regarding examples of positive interaction between the Orthodox Church and non-Orthodox traditional communities, as well as the relationship of free Protestant communities with traditional Christian denominations of the North-West, about the fate in the post-revolutionary years of the fostered inhabitants of numerous charitable institutions established by all Christian denominations of St. Petersburg, as well as a number of other questions.
