The Church and Archaeological Museum of the Holy Metropolis of Abkhazia.
The foundation of the newly created Church-Archaeological Museum of HMA was founded by Archimandrite Dorotheos (Dbar) at the New Athos Spiritual School in 2002. Since 2002 the Foundation has got an extensive collection of pre-revolutionary icons, books, lithographs, photographs and church utensils. In addition there are various architectural artifacts of the ancient Abkhazian temples in the Fund. The collection also contains paintings and graphic works of modern Abkhazian artists on religious topics.
Most exhibits of the Foundation have been discovered or acquired in Abkhazia from 2002 to the present day. The head of the Foundation is the Doctor of Theology, Archimandrite Dorotheos (Dbar).
The Church and Archaeological Museum of HMA will be placed in the eastern three –storey wing of the Monastery of Simon the Canaanite in New Athos. This building was used as an exhibition hall in the Soviet period.
The online exposition of the Foundation of the Church-Archaeological Museum of HMA is available in the official website of HMA (www.anyha.org.category/museum). Dear visitors of the website anyha.org! The administration of the Foundation of the Church-Archaeological Museum of HMA appeals to all residents of Abkhazia with a request for information or transfer of thematic materials and artifacts on the ancient and modern history of Christianity in Abkhazia to the Museum Fund.
