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.
