In preparation for the celebration of the 1100th anniversary of the Baptism of Alania in southern Russia, just north of the border of Georgia, in 2022, the Vladikavkaz Diocese is preparing a complete system of Divine services in the Ossetian language. As Bishop Leonid of Vladikavkaz and Alania reports to TASS, by that time will be translated the foundational liturgical texts and Church hymns.

The language, history, and culture of the Alan-Ossetians, direct descendants of the Scythian-Sarmatian civilization and one of the most ancient Christian peoples, have attracted and continue to attract the attention of specialists of many countries,” the bishop said.
