Chapter Summary

For the numerous Swedes in St. Petersburg the Church of St. Catherine (S: ta Katarina) was the religious, cultural, and social centre of the town. This chapter discusses these two churches: the Swedish church in the small town of Nyen and the church administration in this province, the province of Ingria, and next the Church of St. Catherine in St. Petersburg. It deals with the religious life of the prisoners of war who lived in Russia during the Great Northern War and the church that was founded in Tobolsk in Siberia. To serve the economic and legal interests of the prisoners a Swedish Board of prisoners was established in Moscow under the former head of the Royal Chancellery, Carl Piper. Finally, the chapter focuses on the church founded by the Swedes who moved from Estonia to Ukraine under the reign of Catherine the Great.
