Chapter Summary

This chapter concentrates on non-Orthodox churches of the Christian religion. In this category, the overwhelming majority of papers consists of documents from Protestant and Roman Catholic churches. The majority of the Finnish population in this area adhered to Protestantism in its Evangelical-Lutheran form. The Central State Historical Archive of St. Petersburg (CSHA SPb) contains 37 archives of Protestant religious organizations and institutions, which include about 5, 270 files spanning more than two centuries of the parishes' history. Every year the Archive issues over 1, 000 certificates to Russians and foreigners to assist them in legal matters. A parish of the Armenian Gregorian Church had existed in St. Petersburg since 1710, and later possessed two church buildings. The documents of the non-Orthodox churches are important not only for the ecclesiastical history, but also as the foci of both religious and ethnic life.

Keywords: Armenian church; CSHA SPb; Evangelical-Lutheran form; non-orthodox churches; Protestant churches; Roman catholic church
