  • Byzantium and the Others in the First Millennium: An Empire of stability in a turbulent era

    17 May 2018 until 10 October 2018

    The exhibition of the Byzantine and Christian Museum emphasizes the role of the Byzantine Empire, between 300-1000 AD, as a pole of stability in a period of great uncertainties and conflicts (upheavals and reversals) in the European world as well as in the broader Mediterranean area.

  • ONION CUPOLAS IN LANDSCAPE. Orthodox Churches and Chapels & Estonia

    19 May 2018 until 17 June 2018

    Estonia has always been a borderland on Europes religious landscape. To the east of the country lies the Orthodox world; in the other directions the Western church has always held sway. Orthodox Christianity has never been the dominant religion in these parts, but at different times and in different places it has nevertheless played a significant role primarily for the Russians who have lived here, but also for Estonians, and in particular Estonians residing in the easternmost parts of the country.
