PRAVMIR. The documentary film “Orthodoxy in the British Isles” will be shown on June 18, 2014, at 10:05 PM (Moscow time) on the TV channel “Russia – Kultura.” The author of the film is Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev); the film’s producer is Valery Shehovtsev.

The film, which comes out in the Russian-British cross-culture year, relates the history of Orthodoxy in the British Isles: the conversion of the archipelago’s inhabitants to the Christian faith; the development of Christian churches on the Foggy Albion Islands up to the division between the Eastern and Western churches; as well as the current status of the Orthodox Church in Great Britain.

Participating in the film are bishops, parish priests, and simple parishioners, native Britons who are on the challenging path back to their spiritual roots—to Orthodoxy.

A significant part of the film relates the stories of modern theologians and ascetics that Great Britain gave Orthodoxy, such as Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh, Archimandrite Sophrony (Sakharov), and Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware).

The film was created by the St. Gregory the Theologian Foundation, with support from the Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications.

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.
