Join us for another 19v seminar!

Dubovitskii for his supposed ties to mystic Ekaterina Tatarinova, this paper traces the sources of the investigation to a fundamental divide in Church and state between Petersburg Metropolitan Serafim (Glagolevsky), Alexander I, and the generation that fought the Napoleonic wars, on the one hand, and a new generation that comes to power with Nicholas I and Moscow Metropolitan Filaret (Drozdov), who use the aftermath of the Decembrist Rebellion to justify a much broader purge of the Russian service class in favor of a specifically masculine as well as more conservative elite culture.
