History, letters, and printed matter, relating to the Russian Orthodox convent Bogoroditse-Vladimirskaia zhenskaia obitel' in China and relocated in California.
Mother Ariadna was the Abbess of the convent Bogoroditse-Vladimirskaia zhenskaia obitel'. She entered monastic life in 1917 as a novice of the Ioanno-Bogoslovskii Convent in the town of Cherdyn', Perm' guberniia. She was taken in by the abbess of that convent, Rufina, with whom she would spend the next twenty years. Together they fled the Bolsheviks to Vladivostok in 1919, where Rufina was appointed abbess of the Smolensk Odigitriia Convent, and then again to Harbin, where Rufina established the Bogoroditse-Vladimirskaia zhenskaia obitel' in 1924.
