Confessional Fluidity and the Byzantine Inheritance In Ruthenia

This conference is devoted to the political, religious and cultural re-visioning that fundamentally reordered the early modern Ruthenian world (pre-modern Ukraine) to accommodate the multiple cultural and historic forces that coalesced in the formation of personal, local, transcultural and ecumenical identities of Ruthenians.
