22 February 2023 Venue: Lónyay-Hatvany Villa- 1. Csónak str., 1015 Budapest

During the late Soviet and early post-Soviet period there were several distinct movements pushing for a return to the Orthodox Church. Dr. Noble considers these religious currents and how they relate to the institutional church. Also examined is how demographic trends and religious practices illuminate popular Orthodoxy piety in 21st century Russia.  Finally, she will examine how these at times come into conflict with the institutional church's relationship to the Russian state.
