Congratulations to Sean Griffin, winner of the 2022 Levin Article Prize!

His article, “Revolution, Raskol, and Rock ‘n’ Roll: The 1,020th Anniversary of the Day of the Baptism of Rus,” was published in our April 2021 issue. The article charts a course from 1991 to 2008, laying out the fascinating story of the Baptism of Rus and the cultural narrative surrounding it in post-Soviet politics. Griffin is a Core Fellow in the Collegium for Advanced Studies at the University of Helsinki. His research focuses on the history of the Orthodox Church and its role in the making of cultural memory: from the liturgy and chronicles of medieval Kyiv, to the arthouse films and digital propaganda of modern Moscow.
