The Foundation and its Conferences

In 1992 the Russia Cristiana Foundation was set up with the aim of promoting and disseminating theological, liturgical and artistic studies and research on Eastern European countries and in particular Russia.
Since 1997, in collaboration with academic institutions and European universities, state bodies, renowned authorities on culture, we have held an annual conference to examine historical and cultural phenomena and events which have been previously overlooked, and provide a forum in which perspectives from both the West and East can be voiced.
