December, 28, 2007. In frames of the cultural exchange program between Harvard University and Moscow St. Daniel’s Monastery and “The Link of Times” Foundation a group of students bell-ringers from Harvard University arrived in Moscow to study the art of bell-ringing. During 10 days the students studied theory and practice of bell-ringing, visited and took part in the bell-ringings on the bell-towers of Moscow Kremlin and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. As a part of their course, Harvard students were lectured on the history and traditions of bell-ringing in Russia, the peculiarities of architecture, casting and decorating of bells and also about the necessary safety precautions to be considered during bell-ringing. American students will use these skills on Harvard’s belfries.
