A biography of Patriarch Tikhon Bellavin (1865-1925), head of the Orthodox Church during the Russian Revolution.

This project will be the first complete biography of Patriarch Tikhon Bellavin (1865-1925), who became head of the Orthodox Church in the midst of the Russian Revolution and played a decisive role in guiding the Church in the face of a militantly hostile atheist regime. Based on extensive new primary sources, it follows his career in the Russian Empire and in North America before 1917, which played a formative role on Tikhon as a leader, as well as his role as head of the church from 1917 onward. Although the Soviet authorities labeled him a counter-revolutionary and repeatedly arrested him, Tikhon sought to defend the Church against the Bolsheviks’ assaults against it while at the same time was open to negotiation in a way that prepared the church for surviving in the hostile environment.
