“he traditions of the research work were founded by the members of the Commission on Preservation of Historical and Art Treasures of the Trinity-St. Sergius
Lavra who made a lot for the attribution of the collection within a short period of time.
The contemporary scientific research work deals with several aspects:
1. History and Archeology of the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra, Sergiev Posad and its environs;
2. the Museum collections;
3. The problems of museology.
The museum workers discover new information concerning the district archeology, study and publish old monastery documents, investigate history of the construction, artistic life, social and economic development of Sergiev Posad and its environs in the 19th and 20th century. The results of the investigation are based on the materials of Moscow and Moscow region archives.
The museum staff is also engaged in the investigation and popularization of the unique former Lavra collections, as well as the collections formed in the museum. The serious study of the archive and expedition materials permits to trace the history of separate monuments, collections and their investigation; to reveal artistic features of the monuments, to give a more comprehensive idea of the regional artistic traditions, to present unknown monuments of Russian culture to the scientific world.
The results of the scientific work are reflected in the museum permanent displays and temporary exhibitions presenting Russian art from the 14th till the present days and illustrating the role and significance of the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra in Russian history and culture. In the course of many-year investigation activity the museum workers completed hundreds of different scientific works partially published as monographs, catalogues, albums and articles.
