A. Verkhovsky. In search of compromise between "the Liberals" and "the
Orthodox" - http://religion.sova-center.ru/publications/194EF5E/885EDA0

Presentations by Hegumen Philaret Bulekov and Alexander Kyrlezhev at a
seminar on Evolution of Moral Principles and Human Rights in a
Multicultural Society in Strasbourg last November clarified the position
of the Russian Orthodox Church in arguments about the concept of human
rights. We can even suggest that the presentations, particularly A.
Kyrlezhevís, while they probably represented the authorsí personal
perspective, also helped to advance and further clarify the ROCís
concept of human rights.

Without reproducing their presentations available from our website, we
will proceed directly to critical remarks or, more precisely, to
questions and comments which arise from reading both texts.
