Problems of the Synod Internal Mission Missionaries’ Activities (According to “Missionary Review” Magazine Materials of 1896–1916)

Olga Slyozkina
pp. 66–94
The article presents a short review of the Russian internal mission’ s problems according to materials of “Missionary Review” magazine of 1896–1916. The magazine was an official periodical of the Synod internal mission, which was established in the first half of the XIX century to fight schism and sectarianism. Special interviews where “objects of the mission” were often summoned with police force became the main form of missionary activity. After the Toleration Act of 1905, the Internal mission in part switched to enlightenment of formal Orthodox Christians. The analysis of problems and mistakes of the internal mission in the XIX – early XX century may be helpful in making today’s mission more fruitful.
Keywords: missionary review, missionary, internal mission, anti-sectarian, magazine, polemic-apologetic magazine, internal mission magazine, Skvortsov Vladimir Mikhailovich.
