This French-language book explores the history of two field missions carried out in 1937 and 1938 by Boris Vildé and Léonide Zouroff to Setomaa, a region that today lies on both sides of the border between Estonia and Russia. Historically, Setomaa was a zone of contact between two distinct Orthodox populations: Setos, of Fennic origin, and Russians, or Eastern Slavs. Highlighting documents, object collections, and unique photographs from the expeditions, and featuring contributions from French, Estonian, and Russian researchers—whose perspectives, while sometimes divergent, are always complementary—the book places the scientific contributions of Vildé and Zouroff in context. A journey back in time, it evokes both the history of the creation of the Musée de l’Homme, with its dynamic field research activities, and that of the people and cultures of Setomaa.
