The official opening of the exhibition “The Documentary Heritage of 16th-19th Centuries in Belarus: Archives of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Slutsk” took place on 3 April 2017 in Minsk. The exhibition has been prepared as a result of the collaboration of the National Historical Archives of Belarus and the National Historical Museum of the Republic of Belarus.

The purpose of the project is attribution, description and creation of digital copies of manuscript documents of the 16th-19th centuries held by the Museum, and making them accessible to a wider circle of researchers. The event stands out as especially important in the current year announced as the Year of Science in the Republic of Belarus.

The exhibition offers several dozen of the most interesting documents, including the autographs of King Augustus II, Princes Christopher, Janusz and Boguslaw Radziwill, Count Palatine Charles Philip Neuburg of the Rhine.
