From the history of the numismatic collection of the Church-Archaeological museum at the Kyiv theological academy
The article is devoted to the numismatic collection of the Church Archaeological Museum at the Kyiv Theological Academy. During its existence (1872-1920) the museum collected a beautiful collection of numismatics, which was widely known far beyond the Russian Empire. On January 31, 1873, the decree of the Holy Synod approved the charter of the Kyiv Church-Archaeological Society and the museum with it. The first and only secretary of the Society became a young teacher who worked at the academy for only two years, – Nikolai Ivanovich Petrov (Ріс. 1), who in the future became a famous historian, honored by the ordinary professor, academician. Along with the church's antiquities, the museum collected a numismatic collection. One of the first significant donations to the newly created museum was a collection of antiquities and coins, donated by Archimandrite Antonin (A.I.Kapustinim). In different years, the museum donated coins Mp. Chernev, and AF Novytsky, M.O. Leopardov and many others. At the end of the nineteenth century, the collection of coins amounted to about 17 thousand units. After the revolution of 1917, the activities of the Society were almost stopped. In 1920 the Kyiv Theological Academy was liquidated, and all collections were transferred to the Lavra Museum of Cults and Life. In the 30's The XX-th century numismatic collection of the Church Archaeological Museum was transferred to the Historical Museum. During the Revolution, the Civil War, World War II, the collection suffered significant losses – its number has decreased by more than twice, and today items originating from the Church Archaeological Museum are an ornament of the numismatic collection of the National Museum of Ukrainian History. The article follows the history of its creation, mentioned people who have made a significant contribution to its creation.
