Short description of the Institution:

Non-governmental organisation ‘Dukh i Litera’ (‘Spirit and Letter’) Research and Publishing Association, is a part of the academic institution – National University “Kiev-Mohyla Academy”. Our task is to present to the contemporary reader the books of the most prominent world-wide known thinkers, scholars and classic writers whose works have a significant influence on the present Christian thought; the same time to  bring back to the reader the heritage of the “witnesses of truth” of  XX century. “Dukh i Litera” works in the close contact with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (first of all with Kiev Theological Academy) as well as with other Eastern and Western Churches (Roman Catholic, Anglican etc.).

We want to re-create by the publications of the Eastern and Western theological “classics” the link between the contemporary theology and the tradition of the Kiev theological schools; to make theological literature available for the wide circles of intellectuals, academicians, educators not only in Kiev but all over Ukraine especially in the places where such literature is difficult to find.

One of our main aims is to promote a dialog between theology, philosophy and history; to contribute to the dialog between different humanitarian disciplines, between East and West by presenting our own culture “through the eyes” of other cultural traditions.
