In hardly any of the European countries is the history of the Church so closely related to the history of the country as in Russia. Without knowing the role of the Russian Orthodox Church, one cannot understand the history of Russia throughout many epochs. Thomas Bremer explains in a chronological order the history of Church but also the role of monasticism, and much more – a fascinating and comprehensible book.
The non-fiction book Kreuz und Kreml. Kleine Geschichte der orthodoxen Kirche in Russland [Cross and Kremlin: Short History of Orthodox Church in Russia] by Thomas Bremer has been published in Bulgarian translation (excerpt) by Emil Ivanov under the title Кръстъ и Кремъл, published by Pokrov Foundation, Sofia, and in Serbian translation by Milutin Stanisavac under the title Крст и Кремљ, published by Prosveta, Belgrade.
