The exhibition “The Petrograd Process”

100 years ago, in March 1922, a massive anti-religious campaign to confiscate church treasures began in Soviet Russia, one of the most tragic pages in the history of the Russian Orthodox Church.


To mark the anniversary of this event, a mini-exhibition called “The Petrograd Process” opened in the museum's atrium. Two showcases display photographs and documents related to the trial of the Orthodox clergy and believers in 1922, as well as Orthodox items of everyday use of the late XIX - first quarter of the XX century.


The exhibition is open until April 12 in the atrium
