Orthodox Documentaries

RTD’s Orthodox documentaries show you how one of Christianity’s oldest branches is still practised today. Join 40,000 pilgrims from all over Russia as they follow the icon of St. Nicolay the Wonder-worker in a 5-day, 160-kilometre procession. Or, pay a visit to a remote island and visit the Valaam Monastery, one of the Russian Orthodox Church’s holiest sites. RTD’s Orthodox documentaries also show you how Old Believers, whose sects broke with the church in the 17th Century, still strive to preserve their ancient traditions, like a septuagenarian living deep in the Russian forest, Dukhobor villagers in Georgia, and a community that recently returned to Russia from Latin America.
