Sarov, July 1, 2013

A scientific and spiritual centre is to be established on the basis of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center and the Dormition Monastery of Sarov, reports Interfax-Religion.

It is planned that conferences and other events will be held at the scientific and spiritual center for development of the dialogue between representatives of the scientific community and the Russian Church. The first such event is to take place in November, reports the press service of the Novgorod Metropolia.

The scientific and spiritual center will be located in the buildings that earlier belonged to the Monastery and now are being returned to it.

This project was discussed last Saturday by Metropolitan George of Novgorod and Arzamas and other representatives of the Church, as well as the Russian deputy minister of economic development Andrei Klepach, the deputy minister of agriculture Igor Manylov, the head of Sarov administration Valery Dimitrov and the nuclear center representatives.
