Preface by Scott M. Kenworthy

“St Tikhon (Bellavin, 1865–1925), Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia from 1917 to 1925, was one of the most important figures in twentieth-century Orthodox Church history. Moreover, as head of the largest nongovernmental institution in Russia at the time of one of the twentieth century’s pivotal events—the Russian Revolution—he is a key figure in modern world history. It is a remarkable fact, therefore, that Jane Swan’s book, originally published half a century ago, remains the only English-language biography.”
