What Does an Independent Orthodox Church Mean for Ukraine?

January 5, 2019, marked the beginning of a new era for religion in Ukraine. The newly formed Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU) received a Tomos, or decree of autocephaly, from the Patriarch of Constantinople. Parishes are now individually choosing to transition to the OCU.

Tornike Metreveli, a scholar who studies religion in Ukraine, recently gave a Seminar in Ukrainian Studies at Harvard. Here, he answers some questions about Orthodoxy in Ukraine and the significance of these recent events.

Микола Рябчук в УНІГУ: Підсумки не на часі

Зараз як стипендіат Українського наукового інституту Гарвардського університету він працюватиме над темою «Православне слов'янство і проблеми модернізації: створення сучасної української, російської та білоруської ідентичності як звільнення від східнослов'янської уявної спільноти». Мета цього проекту – написання монографії, яка б охоплювала еволюцію творення сучасної ідентичності трьох слов'янських народів, і яка включала б аналіз і деконструкцію пов'язаних із цим процесом історичних, ідеологічних та квазірелігійних міфів.

Imagining Ukraine: Q&A with Olga Burlyuk

What exactly is Ukraine? In the five plus years since the Maidan protests, or Revolution of Dignity, started in response to Ukraine’s suspension of the process to sign an agreement with the European Union, this question has been mulled by journalists, scholars, citizens, and foreigners. While a uniform consensus seems elusive, the discussion itself is also worthy of attention.

That is the work of Olga Burlyuk, Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for EU Studies, Ghent University (Belgium), who is currently a visiting scholar at HURI.
