Chapter Summary

The history of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Russia during the Soviet period is still one of the more or less unresearched themes in Russian and foreign historiography. Practically no basic historical publications are available, and only with great trouble can one reconstruct the sequence of events, or find the names of pastors and lay members involved. Only a couple of months ago the compilation was started of a martyrology of Lutherans who were repressed or persecuted for their religious beliefs. A vast collection of documentary materials on the history of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Russia during the Soviet period is being preserved in the archives of St. Petersburg, first of all in the Central State Archive of St. Petersburg. The biggest collection of documents is preserved in the archive of the 'Lengorispolkom', in the inventory of the City Committee on the Affairs of Cults.

Keywords: central state archive; Evangelical-Lutheran church; foreign historiography; north-west Russia; soviet period; St. Petersburg
