On March 31, 2021 MPGU Rector Alexey Lubkov and Head of the association Relics of undivided Christianity Miguel Palacio signed a memorandum that allows MPGU to join the association. The event took place in the MPGU main building and was followed by a round table on the topic “Relics of undivided Christianity, or spiritual threads between Russia and the West”.
Relics of Unrequited Christianity» is a cultural, educational and tourist project. Its main task is to create a pan-European route through cultural sites that are common Christian heritage, with subsequent certification in program «Cultural Routes» backed up by the European Council. The phrase «undivided Christianity» refers to the period up to 1054, that is, before the East–West Schism.
The idea of the project arose from the first meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, which took place in Cuba in 2016 and became a landmark event in relations between the Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox Churches. The project is supported by the Ministry of Culture of Russia.
The objects of attention were old book and manuscript collections (up to 1700 AD) associated with the saints of the undivided Church, reflecting cultural, historical and philosophical aspects of common Christian history and inter-Christian dialogue.
