Description

Few churchmen have had a more formidable impact on twentieth
century Orthodox Christianity than Metropolitan Evlogy (Georgievsky).
These personal memoirs, bridging two centuries, vividly bring
to life perhaps the most tumultuous period of Russian history from his
election to the Second and Third State Dumas of 1907 12 to the chaos
of the First World War and his participation in the All-Russian Council
of 1917 amidst the fires of revolution.
A whole new chapter in his life, and for Orthodoxy in the West, began in
the wake of the Russian Revolution, as he became a leader of Russian
émigré life in Paris. Shielded from the ravages of the Bolshevik regime
inflicted on his native Church, Metropolitan Evlogy continued the Russian
religious renaissance that had climaxed at the 1917 Council and
brought it to a world completely unfamiliar with Orthodoxy.
These memoirs encapsulate the life of a missionary and visionary, of
someone who was compelled to leave his home but who then took that
next, courageous step and looked foreword with his faith, seeing all
around him Orthodoxy s enormous potential for growth. His efforts
continue to stand as enduring testaments to his unflagging love for
his flock of fellow refugees and to his vision to transplant and nurture
Orthodox Christianity beyond her native soil.
