123172.pA scientific and spiritual centre is to be established on the basis of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center and the Dormition Monastery of Sarov, reports Interfax-Religion.

It is planned that conferences and other events will be held at the scientific and spiritual center for development of the dialogue between representatives of the scientific community and the Russian Church. The first such event is to take place in November, reports the press service of the Novgorod Metropolia.

The scientific and spiritual center will be located in the buildings that earlier belonged to the Monastery and now are being returned to it.

This project was discussed last Saturday by Metropolitan George of Novgorod and Arzamas and other representatives of the Church, as well as the Russian deputy minister of economic development Andrei Klepach, the deputy minister of agriculture Igor Manylov, the head of Sarov administration Valery Dimitrov and the nuclear center representatives.


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 -,, and 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.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
