Dana L. Robert, Truman Collins Professor of World Christianity and History of Mission, Boston University School of Theology, and Sergei V. Nikolaev, E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism, Russia United Methodist Theological Seminary, announce the establishment of the Digital Archive of Russian Methodist History. The Center for Global Christianity and Mission of Boston University School of Theology and the Boston University School of Theology Library in partnership with the Russia United Methodist Theological Seminary are launching a digital collection on the history of Russian Methodism. The first entries in this archive are unique documents collected by Dr. Robert on the history of Russian Methodists in Harbin after the Russian Revolution of 1917.
Other relevant materials are being identified for inclusion. The goal is to make these rare and priceless documents on the past of Russian Methodism available to scholars and seminary students and to provide present-day Russian Methodists and others with a more complete understanding of the history of Russian Methodism.
