The Vatican and the revolution in Russia at years 1917-1918
Languages of publication
Over the course of 1917, Russia experienced two revolutions. The revolution in March first overthrew the Tsarist regime and established an eight-month provisional government. The subsequent revolution in November toppled the provisional government and established a Bolshevik dictatorship. The far-reaching political and religious changes in the country attracted the attention of the Holy See, which followed events in Russia with extraordinary interest. The picture of conditions represented an incomplete mosaic of testimony which led from initial accommodation to a fairly quick sobering up, especially after the young Bolshevik regime separated the Church from the state and began opposing the relatively liberal religious situation in the country with exceptional brutality.
