Scope and Content of Collection

These papers reflect the ecclesiastical career path of Archbishop Apollinarii (Koshevoi), beginning with his educational formation in pre-Revolutionary Russia to emigration, first in Serbia, then Jerusalem, Palestine, and, finally, as Archbishop of North America and Canada. His assignments, both in Jerusalem and North America, coincided with difficult jurisdictional controversies, especially on the North American continent. His Correspondence reveals a lively exchange with both clergy and parishioners in the U.S. and Canada, and includes directives, ukazy, and ecclesiastical documents forwarded to him from the ecclesiastical administration of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in Belgrade, Serbia.
Detailed processing and preservation microfilming for these materials were made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by matching funds from the Hoover Institution and the Holy Trinity Seminary.
