Serbian Seminary in Kosovo presented with set of ‘Orthodoxy Encyclopedia’ volumes

On the following day, a complete set of ‘Orthodoxy Encyclopedia’ was presented to the students and faculty of the Ss Cyril and Methodius Seminary in Prizren. The set was presented by Hieromonk Ignaty (Shestakov) of the Sretensky Monastery in Moscow.

The pro-rector of the Prizren Seminary, Protosinghel Andrew (Sajc) expressed gratitude to the Russian Orthodox Church for the gift so valuable for an educational institution and for the support the Russian Church gave for several years for the restoration of the seminary’s compound.

One of the oldest in the Serbian Church, the Prizren Seminary is the only educational institution that functions in the territory of Kosovo and Metohija. It resumed its work in 2012 in Prizen from which almost all the Serbian population had been driven out since 1999. At present, there are over 80 students and faculty in the seminary.

The ‘Orthodox Encyclopedia’ volumes will be put in the seminary’s library, has reported.

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.
