Treasures of the Russian North

Jul 30, 2014

William Brumfield is a Professor of Slavic Studies at Tulane University and a former Research Scholar at the Kennan Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

Despite recent extraordinary political change, there is a Russia that is ageless, steeped in a thousand years of history. That history is most powerfully reflected in the great treasures of Russian architecture. Many of the most vivid examples of that architecture – particularly churches and monasteries are found in the frigid reaches of the northern territory.
Scholar and photographer William Brumfield conducts an oral tour of some of the brightest of these treasures.
