(p.71) Two The Challenges of Church Archaeology in Post-Soviet Crimea
Selective Remembrances

University of Chicago Press

This chapter traces the development of the unique discipline of church archaeology and its influence over Crimea's identity. It describes the Christian legends of Crimea and the early association with archaeology in order to explore the complex interplay between faith, science, and national identity that remains evident in Crimea today. It discusses the reemergence of church archaeology in the post-Soviet era today and suggests that Crimea presents no clear-cut case of nationalism and archaeology, whether as a province of the Russian empire or as an autonomous republic attached to Ukraine.

Keywords:   church archaeology, Crimea, national identity, Christian legends, faith, science, nationalism, autonomous republic, Russian empire
