Kyivan Christianity

Book presentation at the Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) in Mainz

The workshop focuses on the concept and publishing series »Kyivan Christianity«, which pretends to reconceptualize the religious (and broader cultural) history of Central-Eastern Europe seen from the Kyivan perspective. Kyiv – not Moscow, Rome, or Constantinople – is thus, in this new historiographic view, the centre and not the periphery. From Kyiv, the culture spread to the north (up to the territory of Courland – modern Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia), to the south (Slavo-Vlachia – modern Moldavia and Northern Romania), to the west (towards Poland) and the East (to 18th-century Russia). The speakers from Lviv (Ukraine) and Leipzig will present the monumental series consisting of 32 volumes of documents in Church Slavonic, Latin, Italian, and Old Polish published from archival collections in Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Serbia, Austria, and Vatican archives.
