The bishop called the lack of religious texts in the School of Literature called a big mistake.
"If our students study Igor's Word, Gilgamesh Legend, why can not I study the same Bible, Torah or the Quran?" He said.
According to the Metropolitan Hilarion, the aforementioned books are remarkable literary works worthy of entry into school textbooks, regardless of the religion of the students.
Representative of the Russian Orthodox Church also recalled the words of President Vladimir Putin, who previously advised young people to address religious texts.
