The lecturer will present a brief history and historiography of the concept “Kyivan Christianity” that is a field of research mostly for Ukrainian historians (Ihor Skochylias and Natalya Yakovenko), although it appears in Polish (Andrzej Gil) and Lithuanian historiography as well. The designation “Kyivan” is central to the concept. Founded in the early Middle Ages, Kyiv remains a symbolic center of Christian culture for the East Slavic in general and contemporary Ukrainians in particular. That is why the word “Kyivan” is at the very heart of the concept. According to historiography, Kyivan Christianity includes only Eastern Christian Churches, particularly Orthodox and Uniate (Greek Catholic).
