Participants of the educational project "The Heart of the Russian Culture" passed their first test

The Moscow Theological Academy Museum of Christian Art "Church-Archaeological Cabinet" have developed a test on the basics of the Orthodox culture for Russian universities students.

A students group, who attended an educational project "The Heart of the Russian Culture" and got acquainted with the museum's collection, passed their tests. On average, they gave 85% of correct answers. 

– This is an unexpectedly good result. After all, the test was quite difficult. We see that the participants of our educational program get acquainted with the basics of the Orthodox culture, historical chronology and the difference between artistic styles,” said Deacon Nikolai Cherepenin, a museum employee, who conducted the testing.

The test questions covered the period from the rise of Christianity to the XX century. The students had to name masterpieces of an icon-painting, for example, the "Holy Trinity" by St. Andrey Rublev. The test also included questions about church architecture, Russian painting and plastic arts. 

Participants of the educational project "The Heart of the Russian Culture" had an opportunity to remotely watch lectures on the history of Christian art and read educational articles on the project's social networks throughout the year. 

Every month, groups of students visited the Moscow Theological Academy to attend interactive practical classes at the Museum of Christian Art.
