Bells of the Danilov Monastery

Photos from here and here

The historical bells of the Danilov Monastery are nearing their return to Russia.

The bells are currently in the possession of Harvard University at Lowell House where they have been since the 1930's.

An agreement was reached in March to return to the bells to the monastery.

of the bells have been made at a Russian bell foundry and are due to be shipped to Harvard as replacements.

More information on the history of the bells can be found here and here.

Some audio recordings of the bells can be heard here.
