А. Verkhovsky. In search of compromise between "the Liberals" and "the Orthodox"
Presentations by Hegumen Philaret Bulekov and Alexander Kyrlezhev at a seminar on Evolution of Moral Principles and Human Rights in a Multicultural Society in Strasbourg last November clarified the position of the Russian Orthodox Church in arguments about the concept of human rights. We can even suggest that the presentations, particularly A. Kyrlezhev's, while they probably represented the authors' personal perspective, also helped to advance and further clarify the ROC's concept of human rights.

Without reproducing their presentations available from our website, we will proceed directly to critical remarks or, more precisely, to questions and comments which arise from reading both texts.

The paper is long enough and includes many footnotes, so we publish it in Word format (120 Kb). Browse or download the article.
