Abstract [en]

The paper treats the short “Ingrian” period in the life of the Belorussian monastic Athenogenes (Anfinogen) Kryžanovskij (fl. 1629–68), a man known to scholarship mainly from his adventurous involvement in Muscovite and Ruthenian church affairs. He is identified as the mysterious archbishop “Arfimager” of Ingria (known from 1638/9), one of of a mere couple of attested Orthodox hierarchs in that Swedish province, and as Aaron “Semblicenscoi”, “archimandrite of Nazareth”, whose epistle to the Ingrian Orthodox in 1651 was to add to the clash between local Lutherans and Orthodox during the Russian–Swedish war of 1656–8 when discovered by local authorities in 1656. The identifications explain several of the outlandish titles bestowed upon Athenogenes in a satirical poem by his countryman Symeon Polockij and throw light on aspects of Orthodox life in Swedish Ingria.
