Another study for A Farewell to Rus. This work reminds us that not only clerics and monastics suffered in the time of the atheist repression of religion in Russia. Uncounted millions of ordinary believers went to their deaths or were swallowed up in the maelstrom of the GULag. Many more suffered at the hands of the commissars, even if they didn’t go to the camps or find a untimely grave. We have no conception of what they went through, truly. They paid the price for faith. Have we?
