Anatoly 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.
