Compiled by Vladimir Moss

“The holy new martyrs of Russia present a[n...]apparent variety in the reasons for their martyrdom. This led some to wonder whether they are all really martyrs for Christ. In particular, some have cast doubt on the sanctity of at least some of the Russian new martyrs and confessors on the grounds that they suffered for ‘political’ reasons, for their pronouncements against the crimes of Soviet power or in favour of monarchism. [...W]e come to the conclusion that the confessing Christians of the Soviet Union suffered and died precisely for Christ and against the Antichrist. [...]The present collection represents a preliminary and very far from complete summary of what we know about the holy New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia since 1917.”
