The Ecclesiastical Scientific Center “Orthodox Encyclopaedia” just published the corpus of documents related to the 17th century reunification of the Kyiv Metropolis with the Russian Orthodox Church. The historical materials cover the period from 1678 to 1686.
“The group of scholars, chaired by a correspondent of the Russian Academy of Sciences, has accomplished a colossal job. It should be all done late 2018 or early 2019. However, the events that happened these past days, the publication of individual materials by the Synaxis of the Church of Constantinople, as well as the abundance of testimonies and interpretations found nowadays on the internet and that are not entirely reliable, have forced us to an unprecedented measure: “The Orthodox Encyclopedia” has started a pre-publication of the corpus of documents related to this topic, both of those already published and of new ones”, said the press release.
All the historical materials are available on line in pdf format. The texts are posted on the “The Orthodox Encyclopedia” website in the “Library” section. Some documents are written in contemporary Russian script, some are available in their original script. Articles and comments on these texts will be published as they become available.
