The Holy Land has a special place in the cultural, intellectual, and political history of Russia. This collection presents a Russian tradition of its perception, comprehension, and exploration, as well as the history of the presence of Russia and Russians in the Holy Land. For more than a thousand years, the Russian Orthodox Church has been involved with apostolic and missionary ministry. This publication comrises various Orthodox missionary materials, such as spiritual monographs, missionary periodicals, travel accounts, archaeological sources, maps, and illustrations. This indispensible source is now available to scholars in various disciplines including Slavic studies, History and Theology.

This collection is currently being catalogued and will be assigned a call number in the near future.
