Sample text

Kiev was also a center for the slave trade, in which Vladimir was also heavily involved. The first martyrs of Russia were a father and son named Feodor and Iyoann. According to the traditional account, Vladimir the Great, in his early years, gained the victory in a decisive military campaign against the Yatvyags, a local non-Slavic tribe. He decided to thank the gods — the pagan deities — for his victory with a human sacrifice. After a consultation, the elders and nobles decided they would throw lots to determine whom to select for the sacrifice.

Emerging from the water, they took communion from priests standing on the shore. At the conclusion of the day’s events, Vladimir declaimed, “Great God who created heaven and earth, view Your new people. ” Metr. Ilarion mentions that those who did not have themselves baptized voluntarily did so out of fear of reprisal from Vladimir. This same scenario was repeated in smaller cities shortly thereafter. According to the account, the priests on the bank of the Dnepr River recited prayers while Vladimir, in ecstasy over the event, prayed to God while standing on the river bank.

Ilarion wrote several edifying theological compositions during his career. ” Once he became metropolitan, Ilarion composed a Confession of Faith, discussing the primary tenets of Orthodoxy in Russian. In 1145, during the reign of Pr. Vsevolod Olegovich, Metr. Mikhail, who had retained the cathedra some fourteen years, abandoned Kiev and returned to Constantinople. He was a Greek and had been bishop of Novgorod from 1129 to 1131. Mikhail’s return after sixteen years in Russia had to do with his dissatisfaction with Vsevolod and the internecine strife between the two families for control of Kievan Russia.
