    Scope and Content of Collection

    These papers reflect the writings, papers and research interests of Stefan Liashevskii, a geologist in the USSR, archpriest of the Russian Orthodox Church, biblical scholar, and historian in emigration. Stefan Liashevskii had close relations with a number of Russian Orthodox hierarchs, which is reflected in his Correspondence File. Among his correspondents were Patriarch Aleksii (Simanskii), Metropolitan Iosif (Chernov) and Metropolitan Nikolai (Eremin).
    The Speeches and Writings FILE includes several historical essays and articles dedicated to ecclesiastical figures known personally by Liashevskii in Russia and in emigration, such as Patriarch Tikhon (Belavin), Metropolitan Serafim (Lade), Hieromonk Sofronii (Sakharov) and others.
    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. The grant also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives. The original materials remain in the Holy Trinity Seminary Archives as its property.
