On April 11, Pravmir.com started working with Foma, an Orthodox journal. Starting from today, Pravmir.com will occasionally publish translated articles from the journal with a link to the original text.
Foma is an Orthodox journal aimed at doubting people, hence the name Foma, which means Thomas in Russian, in honor of the Doubting Thomas. It was founded in 1996 by journalists Vladimir Legoyda and Vladimir Gurbolikov. Its mission is to tell people about the Orthodox faith and the Church and its importance in the life of modern society. Foma tries to appeal to various people regardless their religious, political or other views.
Foma is not an official journal of the Russian Orthodox Church. However, the journal was awarded a vulture “Approved by the Synodal Information Department of the Russian Orthodox Church”.
Pravmir.com is looking forward to sharing Foma’s materials with our readers and hearing back from them about what topics and issues are of most interest to them. The first translated article is to be published on April 12.
