A commemorative plaque to Russian philosopher and theologian Fr. Pavel Florensky will be established in Moscow, reports Foma, with reference to the Moscow city news agency.

According to the decision of the Capital Commission for Monumental Art, “the commemorative plaque will be installed on the exterior side façade of the Lenin All-Russian Electrical Engineering Institute, at 12 Krasnokazarmermennaya Street.”

Fr. Pavel Florensky (1882-1937) was a versatile man. Besides theology, philosophy, and art, he studied phsyics and mathematics, and taught at the Moscow Theological Academy at the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra.

Fr. Pavel spent the last years of his life in correctional camps. On November 25, 1937 he was sentenced to death by the Special Troika of the People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs of the Leningrad Region, and was executed on December 8, 1937.
