Xenia Dennen Chairman Keston InstituteWelcome to Keston Institute

Founded in 1969, Keston Institute was the "voice of the voiceless" and regularly reported on the situation of persecuted believers in the USSR and the countries of Eastern Europe. From its foundation, to ensure the reliability of its reporting, Keston Institute built up an archive of documentation from all the countries it studied.

Today Keston’s archive is unique and the main source for the history of religion in East and Central Europe as well as the former USSR.
