Vestnik – Issue 7, Winter 2007

Vestnik was launched by SRAS in 2004 as one of the world’s first online academic journals focused on showcasing student research. We welcome and invite papers written by undergraduates, graduates, and postgraduates. Research on any subject related to the broad geographic area outlined above is accepted. If you have written solid research eligible for publication according to the guidelines listed here, please submit it.

This, our seventh issue, offers three papers that explore comparisons and contrasts. “Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic Sacred Art” examines differences in motifs and techniques historically used in art produced on the two sides of the great schism. “The Geopolitics of Oil Pipelines in Central Asia” compares and contrasts the foreign policies and proposed pipelines of four major competitors for Central Asia’s hydrocarbons. Lastly, “Religious Periodicals and US-Soviet Relations” compares and contrasts how the Cold War was – or wasn’t – reflected in periodicals marketed to Catholics and Protestants in the United States.
