Agreement Signed Between Armenian and Russian Seminaries

On May 16, with the blessings of His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians; and His Holiness Kirill I, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia; an agreement of cooperation was signed between the Gevorkian Theological Seminary and the Moscow Theological Academy of the Russian Orthodox Church.  The signing ceremony was held in the auditorium of the Gevorkian Seminary. On this occasion the a delegation from the Moscow Theological Academy visited Armenia, under the leadership of His Eminence Archbishop Eugene of Vereya, Chairman of the Academic Committee of the Russian Orthodox Church and Rector of the Moscow Theological Academy.

The ceremony was opened with the Lord’s Prayer followed by the hymns of the Republic of Armenia, Russia, and the Gevorkian Theological Seminary.  His Grace Bishop Gevorg Saroyan, Dean of the Gevorkian Theological Seminary and Rector of the Religious Educational Institutions of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin; gave his opening remarks. "This day signifies yet another crucial juncture in the spiritual relations of a lifelong history between our nations, connected by faith, history, culture and a pure worldview. It is of utmost importance for us to educate the faithful servants of our church, as those are the people who will greatly contribute to the revival and prosperity of our Christian world through their devotion, faith and patriotism. We are positive that the agreement between the two institutes will contribute to the reinforcement and development of the relations between the seminaries and will open new horizons for future cooperation", His Grace stated in part.

OK.  The picture I posted is really big.  How do I make it smaller?

300 to 500 usually works.

I keep forgetting what the Armenian monastic headdress is called, but I love it.  I'd want to wear that everywhere.

More seriously, I'm very glad to read this.  Do the Armenian and Russian Churches enjoy especially good relations?

Yes. I don't remember the details, but there's been a fair amount of cooperation in recent years on various questions. Historically, Russia has been friendly to Armenia and helped defend Armenia against the Persians. Of course Russia could also be very domineering over its protectorates, but I'm not sure if the situation was the same in Armenia as it was, say, in Georgia.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

No lie, this is actually shocking to me.  I've met many Armenians in my lifetime accross the nation & i've NEVER heard a single one of them have anything nice or good to say about Russia or the MP. 

I'm willing to believe i'm wrong here, just was speaking out of my own personal experience.  I should have said that in the beginning.

I was being semi-funny...or at least trying to be...lol. 

I honestly never liked the "big brother Russia" relationship with Serbia.  As for Christian Arabs...not gonna lie, that's a shocker as well.  Learning all kinds of interesting things today.

Anecdotes are not always indicative of reality. Nor do I really think the average layperson (or even local clergyman) is probably aware of the longstanding warm and fraternal bonds between the two churches, especially in the post-Soviet era.

The Catholicos and the Patriarch of Moscow have enjoyed several very warm and cordial visits in Russia and Armenia. When Pat. Kirill was elevated, the Catholicos was rather prominently in attendance, and the MP has sent similar delegations to major church events in Armenia. There are many Armenian parishes in Russia that serve the rather large Armenian population there, many of whom have moved to Russia over the past 10 to 15 years for largely economic reasons. There are even several MP parishes in Armenia, which predominantly cater to Russian soldiers and various ex-pats. The link between the two countries is particularly personal for the Catholicos, as he not only studied in Russia for a time, but his brother (also a bishop) is the primate of the Armenian Diocese of Russia, and resides in Moscow.

So, yes, to answer your original question, the churches do "enjoy especially good relations."

A century ago, relations were not good.  The last Czar was repressive, and he even confiscated Armenian Church property.  Things now are different and, as Aram said, the two Churches have warm relations.

Salpy, use only one measure as using both might affect the aspect ratio. Choose either the height or width to control, unless of course you want to change or don't care about the aspect ratio.
