This paper describes the origins, history, traditions, and teachings of the Russian Orthodox Church. The paper also looks at the role it plays in the lives of many Russians, how the Church was treated by governments of different eras in Russian history, and describes the architecture and design of typical Orthodox Churches.

From the Paper:

"The Russian Orthodox Church has a strong political and spiritual influence over the entire Russian state. They believe two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth and founded the Church through his apostles and disciples, for the salvation of man. In the years, which followed, the Apostles spread the Church and its teachings far and founded many churches partaking of the Mysteries or Sacraments of the Holy Church. God the Father is considered the fountainhead of the Holy Trinity. Jesus Christ is the second person of the Holy Trinity, eternally born of the Father. The Holy Spirit is considered one of the persons of the Holy Trinity and is one essence with the Father. Incarnations refer to Jesus Christ coming. The eternal Son of God the Father assumed to himself a complete human nature from the Virgin Mary. Salvations means the divine gift through men and women are delivered from sin and death and united to Christ and brought into his eternal kingdom. Baptism means the way a person is actually united to Christ. The experience of salvations is initiated in the waters of Baptism."
