WATCH: Orthodoxy in the British Islands

“Orthodoxy in the British Islands,” a new documentary written by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, just premiered on the Rossiya-Kultura TV channel in Russia.

According to a press release, the “film recounts the history of Orthodoxy in the British Islands, conversion of the archipelago’s peoples to Christianity, development of Christian churches there before the division between East and West and today’s state of the Orthodox Church in Great Britain.”

It also includes interviews with various bishops, priests, and parishioners about “their difficult path back to their spiritual sources, which is Orthodoxy.”

The documentary includes coverage of some of the most well known Orthodox figures in Britain, including Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh, Archimandrite Sophrony Sakharov, and Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diokletia.

At this point, it is only available in Russian and there are no subtitles, but you can watch it above. If the embedded version above doesn’t work, try watching it here.
