About This Item

Moscow: Tip. V. Gotie, 1863. Octavo (23 × 15 cm). Original printed self-wrappers; 5 pp. Binding reinforced with paper; foxing throughout. About good. <br/><br/>Geneva: Russkaia tipografiia, 1939. Octavo (20.5 × 14.5 cm). Original printed wrappers; 16, [1] pp. Five leaves of illustrations. Light soil to wrappers, else very good. Two brochures on the history of the Russian Orthodox Church in Geneva, a testament to the active Russian émigré community in Switzerland in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Church initially opened in Geneva in 1854 in a rented building. The first brochure announces the laying of the foundation for the building of the freestanding traditional Orthodox Church in 1863. Printed in Moscow, the brochure was appended to the September 1863 issue of the monthly journal "Dushepoleznoe chtenie," and contains sanctification speeches and fundraising information for the building project. The second brochure, printed by the Church in Geneva in 1939, when the building was under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, provides a historical overview of the Church and the work of its congregation, led at the time by &#1040;rchpriest Sergei Orlov. After the Bolshevik Revolution, to meet the needs of the émigré influx, Orlov founded an Orthodox school connected to the Church in 1925. The brochure also discusses a 1938 exhibition, which opened on the occasion of 950th anniversary of Christianity in Russia, with the intention of representing Russian religious traditions to the West. Not in the Russian State or National Libraries. Not in the Savine collection. As of June 2020, KVK and OCLC show only two copies of the 1939 title at Geneva and Ohio State.
