A HISTORY OF THE RUSSIAN CHURCH ABROAD
AND THE EVENTS LEADING TO THE AMERICAN METROPOLIA’S AUTOCEPHALY:
This very valuable collection of historical data and commentaries, (all footnoted!) is a unique collection of documents, which are no longer available in the original Russian texts.
This covers the Russian church from just before the revolution, and what happened with the formation of the Exile Russian Church Administration, and the effects of all that chaos in Russia, upon the North American Russian Metropolia, (established by the Russian Church, from the early 1700's Russian-Alaskan mission days till the bolshevik revolution), including Archb. Platon's Schism from the lawful canonical authority of the Church Abroad, in about 1923-1924.
Also covered, are insights into those (heretical) Parisian Evlogian Renovationists, who, took over St. Vladimir's Seminary, and the on and off years, when the schismatic Metropolia and the Synodal Church, were sometimes in communion, and then out of communion, etc...till right after the infamous 1946 Metropolia's 'Cleveland Sobor', when the bishops of the Metropolia said their final goodbye to the Synod Abroad, etc., etc.
This covers all of that history, up to the 1970 pathetic and mistaken acceptance of 'Autocephaly' by the power-hungry Metropolia, from the KGB controlled MP in Moscow.
What is documented here, is a very clear explanation to the whys, that the 'Moscow Patriarchia' which the communists concocted, after Patriarch Tikhon's passing, culminating in the 1943 official Stalin's inauguration of it, as 'his-church', was not and still is not, THE legitimate or canonical Russian Church, the same church that the last & authentic Russian Patriarch, St. Tikhon (Belavin) headed.
This satanic Sergianist communist-created monstrosity called the 'Moscow Patriarchia', is NOT the legitimate continuation of the old historic real Russian Church, but is a KGB front., which never had the right to grant anyone, 'autocephaly' (to the old Metropolia in 1970) or 'autonomy' (to ROCOR in 2007)
*Yet, in June of 2007, our old ROCOR was also betrayed and submitted to this false Russian Church, this same KGB front church, called the MP (!)
