About this product
- DescriptionIndeed, of all the pre-1917 institutions, the Orthodox Church proved the most resilient. Based on previously unavailable Russian archival sources as well as written memoirs and interviews with surviving monks and nuns, Wyt analyzes the monasteries' adaptation to the Bolshevik regime. She challenges standard Western assumptions that Communism effectively killed the Orthodox Church in Russia. She shows that in fact, the role of monks and nuns in Orthodox monasteries and convents is crucial, and that they are largely responsible for the continuation of Orthodoxy in Russia following the Bolshevik revolution.
- Author BiographyJennifer Jean Wynot, who holds a Ph.D. in history from Emory University, has done archival research in Russia and has written several articles on monasticism and the Orthodox Church. She is currently teaching at Metropolitan State College of Denver.
