Ms Ksenia Knaus is the project author and coordinator.

Among archive materials one can find on the website are those provided by the Minsk diocesan administration, Minsk theological seminary and academy, and the church of St. Alexander Nevsky.

As of today, posted on the website are over three hundred articles written by Metropolitan Philaret and his Paschal and Christmas messages.

Also placed on the website are over twenty publications by Metropolitan Philaret and those about his life and work as well as a selection of films, videos and audios of sermons and his reading of the Great Penitential Canon of St. Andrew of Crete. Available on the website are seventy-one condolences sent by representatives of secular society, Orthodox clergy, and leaders of non-Orthodox religions and confessions.
