Alexander Nevsky Lavra Museum Opened in Petersburg

The Museum of Alexander Nevsky Lavra of St. Petersburg has been opened with the exhibition Non licet vos esse. You Oughtn’t Be.

      The exhibition is dedicated to the history of campaign for confiscation of church values in the 1920s.

The Museum of Alexander Nevsky Lavra is housed in the historical building, where the monastic library, archive and storage of ancient church items were located before the revolution.

      Non licet vos esse. You Oughtn’t Be - with such a sentence the Roman emperors deprived first Christians of their right for existence. The Soviet power used the same principle in its consistently accruing persecutions on the church from 1917. The opening exhibition addresses the dramatic pages in the history of these persecutions - the withdrawal of church values. 

The first exhibition in the history of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra Museum also highlights the history of emergence and activities of the fraternity for protection of sacred objects of Alexander Nevsky Lavra.

      The exposition presents rare documents, newspapers and photos of the 1920; paraphernalia of the clergy; objects from the funds of the Museum of Alexander Nevsky Lavra and the library of the St. Petersburg Ecclesiastical Academy.
