Orthodoxy and Science in Russia

by Dr Anna Saprykina

The year 2017 in Russia is the century anniversary of Russian revolution. Public, state and scientific events of this year in Russia are dedicated to the centenary of one of the most tragic events in Russian and world history. Results, conclusions that we can make, looking back to the past century - these are the main topics raised today at conferences, round tables, exhibitions. We can say that this is an important epoch in the history of Russian science, including both the science and religion relationship and education issues.

Prof. Alexey Bodrov visits SOW

On Monday, March 7 2016, Professor Alexey Bodrov, the founder & Rector of St Andrew’s Biblical Theological Institute in Moscow, visited Project SOW at the Institute of Historical Research/NHRF. We had a great discussion after making a brief presentation of Project SOW, and we had the opportunity to learn about the very interesting upcoming events organized by St Andrew's BTI.

Fr Andrew Louth at SOW

On Wednesday, March 2, 2016, Father Andrew Louth, Professor Em. at Durham University and renowned theologian, visited the Project SOW team at the Institute of Historical Research/National Research Foundation.
We took the opportunity to update Father Andrew on the project's details, after which a wonderful discussion followed.
Members of SOW team asked Fr Andrew's opinion about various issues concerning science and religion, and in turn he commented on the differences between Western and Orthodox responses to Science, as well as the importance of the Patristic and Byzantine Orthodox tradition today. He also gave a brief overview of the science & religion dialog in Russia, mentioning the contribution of Andrew Florensky and other prominent Russian scholars.
