Summary/Abstract: The Russian diaspora played an important role in the 20-th century religious and spiritual revival. The French capital was the main centre of the Russian religious and cultural renaissance of in the 1920s and 1930s. In Paris, there were dozens of Orthodox churches and chapels. Religious life flourished, accompanied by intellectual revival. This led to the rise of what can be legitimately called a separate Orthodox, emigrational school of theology.
