Radziwilliana. 6 Lectures on the History of the Great Family

The famous house of the Radziwills has long and well been connected not only to the history of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, but also to the cultural heritage which nurtures the identity of any modern Belarusian. Great warriors, cunning politicians, creators and innovators, passionate art lovers and the prototypes of various legends and romantic stories... the Radziwills were not just magnates, they personalized Sarmatian ideology and lived in the awareness of self-exclusiveness coupled with the responsibility for the fate of their native lands. Although the Grand Duchy of Lithuania has been filed as a history more than two centuries ago and the descendants of the Princes are no more galloping as a “wild hunt” through the vastness of Belarus, the “Radziwilliana” – the focus of the research on the family deeds, – is one of the most vivid and exciting areas of the historical research in our country. The National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus and its special Radziwilliana lecture programme, dedicated to the temporary exhibition “The Radziwills: the Fates of the Country and the Family”, is a chance to see it by the own experience. Every Saturday, 4 p.m.
