Ukrainian Orthodox Church in National Geographic

Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra

Brendan Hoffman’s photo essay on the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, a nearly thousand-year-old religious complex in Ukraine, was published by National Geographic.

Should an autocephalous Ukrainian Orthodox Church be established, control of the Pechersk Lavra will surely be a major point of contention.
