Moscow Authorities Approved of the Action 'Night in the Temple'

Night in the Temple is a project that gives a chance for anyone to go on a late excursion in churches, cathedrals, synagogues and mosques.


      "It rallies people very much indeed. It is interesting. There is time and opportunity to learn more about history. The temple is not a museum, but is of historical value in its own way. We will surely discuss this subject with representatives of various confessions" — Evgeny Gerasimov, the head of the Culture Committee at the Moscow City Council said.


      Representatives of Islam, Catholicism and Judaism declared determination to open the doors of their sanctuaries.


      However the Russian Orthodox Church scarified the idea of the Night in the Temple.


      "Our churches are anyway open for 14 hours a day. It is not a good idea because churches are open from early morning till evening, till the end of church service. It is inexpedient to open the church for the night. It is not a museum. It is unlikely his Holiness Patriarch will bless it" — the archpriest Dmitriy Smirnov stated.
