tolya-anya-580x396Anatoly Danilov, the co-founder and Director of the web portal “Orthodoxy and the World” passed away on September 12, presumably from a heart attack.

Anatoly Danilov was the author of the idea of ​​the portal “Orthodoxy and the World.” In 2004, together with his future wife Anna and their confessor Archpriest Alexander Ilyashenko they created a new Orthodox website which  aimed to engage the non-church audience. The portal “Orthodoxy and the World” has since become  the most popular web portal about Orthodoxy and society.

In March 2013 Anna and Anatoly’s daughter Natalia was born.

We grieve together with Anna and ask our readers to pray for the repose of Anatoly’s soul.

P.S. We would be grateful if our readers can support  Anna financially in this difficult time.  If you wish to do it, please just click on Paypal button below. All donations will be forwarded to Anna.

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.
