Each participant should deliver their reports in twenty minutes, however, if arguments occur, it should take no more than ten minutes.

Two anniversaries will take place in 2014, which are essential to the modern Orthodox Christianity, the Russian Orthodox Church, and the whole country. These events are the 700th anniversary of the birth of the Very Venerable, St. Sergius of Radonezh (1314-2014), Founder of the Holy Trinity – St. Sergius Lavra, and the 200th anniversary of the Moscow Theological Academy’s transference to the Lavra premises (1814-2014), which is the leading higher educational institution of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The Moscow Theological Academy is the first higher educational institution of Russia which was founded by the Likhuds brothers, Ioanniky and Sofrony, as a Slavic, Greek, and Latin Academy in Moscow in 1685. The transference of the academy from Moscow to the Lavra premises occurred in 1814, which was associated with various historical events and became a milestone in the life of both the academy and the whole Russian education. Inside this ‘St. Sergius’ Large Cell’ the academy was put in especially favorable conditions for both spiritual growth of teachers and students and its development into the leading scientific and theological center of Russia.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
