Fyodor Ivanovich Schmit was a prominent Russian Byzantinist, art historian and museologist. This article is devoted to one of the episodes of his academic biography in the mid — second half of the 1920th: his relations with the Academy of Sciences of the USSR and an attempt to propose him as a full member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1928—1929. Schmit's theoretical conceptualizations did not find understanding among members of the academic corporation, but they were enthusiastically accepted by scholars of the younger generation. In particular, representatives of the museum world actively supported Schmit's election to the Academy.

Key words: Byzantine studies, history of science, archives, Russian Academy of Sciences, S.A. Zhebelyev, F.I. Schmit.
