Russian Historical Society Revive Their Traditions
Now Playing: Language: Russian. Duration: 1 minute, 48 seconds
Topic: Russian History

 

Grand Duke Nicholas Mikhailovich served as President of the Imperial Russian Historical Society 

After 95 years, the Russian Historical Society have revived their traditions. Today, the Chairman of the State Duma, Sergey Naryshkin has laid the groundwork for its successor.

"The goals of the Society will be respect for history, historical education, and the study and preservation of archival documents," said Naryshkin. "Consistent with the traditions of the Imperial Russian Historical Society, which published more than 150 volumes of documentary publications before the Revolution, we will continue this work in collaboration with Rosarkhiv, RAS, and the All-Russia Society of Historians, and archivists," he went on to say.

Founded in 1866, the Imperial Russian Historical Society was banned in 1917. The fate of many of its members was a sad one: dismissal, exile, and even death. Despite this, however, the Society carried on with its activities in exile. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, there has been a growing interest among Russians in the history of pre-Revolutionary Russia. New books on the Romanov dynasty and Imperial Russia quickly fill the shelves of book stores. But the revision of the past goes hand in hand with the falsification of facts. In this regard, the new Russian Historical Society plans more control of educational and methodological literature on Russian history, encouraging only the finest teachers, and a revival of interest in the study of Russia's past.

"The rebirth of the famous Imperial Russian Historical Society is very important. The Society lasted more than half a century, and attracted numerous intellectuals, historians, poets, and composers," said the MGIMO rector Anatoly Torkunov.
