    1. This is an interview with Father Grigory Geronimus about his father Archpriest Aleksandr.

      Aleksandr came from a family of atheists. He had studied at Moscow State University’s math department but it was hard for him to become a priest in the 1970s, in the aftermath of the state-run anticlerical campaign. Aleksandr saw his desire to become a priest as an attempt to synthesise science and religion. Even after becoming ordained, Aleksandr remained actively interested in the latest scientific acchievements and never left science completely. It was important for Aleksandr to reflect on science from the point of view of religion, through prayer, analysis, and meditation. He admired the works of Gregory Palamas (1296-1359) and Maximus the Confessor (580-662 AD), which in his view helped create a dialogue with modern science.

      Fr. Grigory also reflects on the coexistence of science and religion. In this sense he particularly appreciates the works of the Cappadocia Fathers of the 4th century who intellectualized Christian doctrine. This was possible because they received their education at the Platonic Academy (387BC-529AD), one of the most important educational institutions of the time, and based on the ideas of Plato and Aristotle. Cappadocian Fathers “christianized” the modern scientific language of their time. This, Fr. Grigory explains, is what his father had wanted to do with today’s modern scientific language. Fr. Grigory himself had a renewed religious awakening after reading the works of bishop Anthony of Sourozh (1914-2003) who had been educated in Paris and worked as a doctor.
