Persecuted Orthodoxy  Unique Old Believers Icons Displayed

The exhibition "Persecuted Orthodoxy" is timed to coincide with the 400th anniversary since the birth of the outstanding Russian writer, martyr and confessor, Archpriest Avvakum.

      The main goal of the exhibition is to show the spiritual and material culture of the Old Believers to its fullest.

      On display are unique icons of the 16th – 20th centuries, castings, paintings, one-of-a-kind and printed graphic artworks, old printed books and manuscripts, modern publications, liturgical utensils, and items for church and home prayer.
