Emblem of the society

The Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society (Russian: Императорское православное палестинское общество), founded in 1882, is a scholarly organization for the study of the Middle East. Following the Russian Revolution of 1917, the society was renamed the Russian Palestine Society (Russian: Российское Палестинское Общество) and attached to the Academy of Sciences of the USSR.[1] Its original name was restored by the society on 22 May 1992.[2]
