Example text

For the first 50 years after Vladimir’s conversion, the metropolitan had his cathedra not in Kiev but in Kievan Pereyaslav, about 50 miles south of Kiev where the Alta and Trubezh Rivers converge. Vladimir the Great had ties primarily with the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, and for this reason located the initial Greek metropolitans supplied by the patriarch, Leonti and Ioyann I, not in Kiev, his capital, but at this distant residence; their efficacy was nominal, if that. The cathedra was moved to Kiev with the completion of the Church of St.

It was taken to the Dnepr, pushed into the current by soldiers, and sent floating downstream until it was destroyed in the rapids. Subsequent to the mass baptism at Kiev, Vladimir destroyed the rest of the pagan idols. The local Orthodoxy praised his efforts and began construction of new churches to replace the pagan temples. Vladimir built a new church in honor of St. Vasili, his patron saint, on the very hill where he had earlier erected the statue of Perun. Golubinski relates that many were not convinced of the superiority of Orthodoxy over their traditional paganism and refused the superficial conversion, while others turned a deaf ear to the commands, and still others took flight out of the city.

The retinue of Ioyann IV, the new metropolitan of Kiev, arrived 1164 and presented many valuable gifts to Rostislav, in order to quell his anger over the patriarch’s refusal to accommodate his choice of Kliment. Eventually, Ioyann IV was accepted by Rostislav, but reluctantly. Kliment died in exile, in about 1164, while his successor Ioyann died May 12, 1166. 11. EARLY SAINTS AND MARTYRS The early expansion of Orthodoxy did not progress without persecution from opposing religions and from nationalities that were enemies of Kievan Russia, although the histories of such events were somewhat embellished to magnify their martyrs; and some are obviously legends.
