New season of the "Faces of the Academy" series
The film studio of the Moscow Theological Academy “Bogoslov” has started filming the second season of the “Faces of the Academy” series for a website Bogoslov.Ru
The project "Faces of the Academy" is a series of video interviews aimed to popularize the theological scientific potential of the Moscow Theological Academy. It gets viewers acquainted with the staff of the biggest higher educational institution of the Russian Orthodox Church. In each episode, they will tell about life at the Moscow Theological Academy, the Russian Church and their personal life experience. The materials will be of a great interest for teachers and students of theological universities and departments, as well as to a wide range of people.
The first season shot in 2012-2015 presented such outstanding characters of theological science and education in Russia as Professor Konstantin Efimovich Skurat, Alexei Ivanovich Sidorov, Nikolai Konstantinovich Gavryushin, Hegumen Andronik (Trubachev).
