I Witness - Visual History Archive

With the fruits of the 'Living Testimony' research and electronic reserve archive collections, 'Rescue', we wish to create a Visual History Database, 'I Witness'.

This will comprise:

  • A bi-lingual multimedia Archive for use as an educational and research tool.
  • A catalogue of the Archive and technological infrastructure to allow researchers, educators, students and others, instant access to specific information contained within the hours of testimony, for:
    • Inclusion in repositories and universities worldwide
    • Historical and sociological research
    • Development of educational materials including documentaries, CD-ROMs, and publications
    • Creation and enhancement of museum and other public exhibitions, international development of local and regional videotape libraries

Other collections of related data and artifacts connected with St Seraphim exist in different cities and countries. We see the archive not as a centralised archive, but, through establishing agreed standards, researchers and others in different parts of the world will be enabled to share their work and develop a substantial Archive of material for use in schools, among students, and accessible world-wide through the internet. In time, a significant database will exist.

Why?

To enable researchers and others in different parts of the world to share their work. To develop a substantial body of material for use in schools. To establish a significant inter-active web-site from which to answer questions concerning the saint, his influence and the transfiguring power of his life.

Benefits

The success of this programme will enable us to make a major contribution to St Seraphim Studies world-wide, thereby ensuring that the fruits of this work are accessible to present and future generations.
