Proto-Ecumenical Contacts of the Russian Orthodox and Anglican Churches in the Second Third of the 19th Century: Factors and Consequences
This study attempts to offer a detailed examination of the interfaith dialogue between Anglican and Russian Orthodox communities and Churches in the second third of the 19th century on the basis of a wide array of sources. While occasionally addressed by theologians and religious philosophers who focused on key doctrinal points, this topic has largely been neglected by historians and has never been the focus of a comprehensive study. The findings of the present research will provide a contribution to the history of the ecumenical movement and its origins and add a previously unexamined facet to the history of international relations between Great Britain and Russia of the 19th century.
