Annual Pokrov Readings in Brussels
The topic of the “Readings” this year was the ministry of the Russian Church through the years of militant atheism. Researchers from Russia, the Ukraine, Estonia, and Latvia took part in the conference.

Saint Tikhon´s Orthodox University of the Humanities was represented by the Rev. Dr. Alexander Mazyrin, Professor of History, and Dr. Andrey Kostryukov, a leading researcher at Saint Tikhon´s University.

Professor Alexander Mazyrin gave a talk on “The Problem of Relations with an Atheistic Regime in the Eyes of the New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian Church”. The talk gave an overview of the positions of those who suffered for Christ, beginning with Patriarch Tikhon and ending with the hierarchs and priests who perished during the Great Terror.

Andrey Kostryukov´s talk reflected on the problems of interrelations between the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad and the Catacomb Church in Russia in the 1970s and 1980s.

The attendees also heard talks from members of Moscow Lomonosov State University, the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Don State Technical University, and Penza Theological Seminary. The researchers spoke about the reaction to the murder of Nicholas II, secret monasticism in the Soviet era, the Red terror in the Don region, and the service of the Holy Hieromartyr Archbishop John (Pommer) in protecting the Chuch in Latvia.

The talks by the foreign researchers from Latvia, Estonia, and the Ukraine were about the repressions of clerics and laypeople of Riga Diocese under the Soviet regime (from 1944-1952); Bishop Platon´s ministry and efforts to create Orthodox brotherhoods in Estonia; and the Red terror in Kiev.
